Hi there, first time poster :)

I need to set up a testing environment for 3000 concurrent connections(XenApp Shared Desktops on Vmware). My colleagues have kindly setup 100 launcher machines for me. Each machine is registered in DNS with a default Windows computer name (e.g. WIN-7K57M8D9TC7). Is there a quick way to get these 100 machines into my launcher list without doing it one by one?

Any suggestions would be appreciated - If I have to enter them manually so be it, but if there's an easier way!

thanks

Hello,

Do you have any way of retrieving just the launchers? Are that all added to a specific OU or something like that? The code below was used to get VM names from System Center virtual machine manager and put their hostnames into the launcher.ini file. You could perhaps use something like that.
$VMs = get-vm -VMMServer VMMServer -name PVVSI*
 
foreach ($VM in $VMs)
{
$name = $VM.ComputernameString.replace('.domain.local','')
add-content launcher.ini "[$name]`n"
add-content launcher.ini "Capacity=50`n"
add-content launcher.ini "Disabled=0`n"
add-content launcher.ini "CMLaunch=0`n"
add-content launcher.ini "Notes=`n"
}

Excellent, thanks for that - this has got a few cogs spinning in my head - I was trying to find where the launcher config was stored.
