RDS farm: delete a server not available in the deployment

Windows Server 2012R2  Windows Server 2016  Windows Server 2019

In this tutorial, we will see how to remove a server from a deployment that is no longer available.

When connecting to the service broker, the following message is displayed:

The following deployment servers are not in the server pool
.Add them to the server pool

This type of error occurs if the server has been added with another account in the RDS farm and this one is removed without having been removed from the RDS deployment.

Remove server from deployment

Open a PowerShell command prompt in administrator mode on the broker server and enter the Get-RDServer command to identify the server to be deleted.


Once the server has been identified, enter the command below (adapting to the name of the server) to remove it from the RDS deployment.

A warning message is displayed because the server is no longer available.

Refresh the server manager to access the administration of the RDS farm.
