Windows Server 2012 R2: Changing “Work Resources” name in RDS Logon page


By default RDS 2012 names the REWeb page to “Work Resources”. You can change it easily using Set-RDWorkspace cmdlet in PowerShell.

Before you change the name, have you added all the RDS 2012 servers into All Servers section in Server Manager. This makes things very easier. (hope you are using Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012). If not just logon to RDS Connection Broker server.

1. Open PowerShell as Administrator. (All RDS cmdlets runs on elevated PowerShell)

2. Type Import-Module RemoteDesktop

3. Type Set-RDWorkspace –Name “My Awesome Company Apps” –ConnectionBroker RDS-CB.company.com (Of course, you will have to change the name to your own text and provide your connection broker’s FQDN)

4. That’s all. Try opening RDWeb page.
