Manage RDP properties of an AVD host pool

Applies to: Nerdio Manager for MSP (NMM) v2.4+

This article helps us explore the custom RDP properties of an AVD host pool. The custom RDP properties on host pools consist of connection information, session behavior, device redirection, display settings, and other advanced settings. All these settings are always synchronized with Azure portal settings. Let us understand how you can configure the custom RDP properties on your host pool.

Log on to NMM portal and navigate to AVD > Host pools from the main menu. Expand the action menu and click "Properties" option as shown below:


Select "Custom RDP" tab and then select/unselect individual checkboxes as shown below. Once done, click "Save" or "Save & Close" button. Alternately, click "All settings" button to manage all RDP properties:


Once you click "All settings" button, you will be able to view all custom RDP settings for the selected host pool "Customer service team":


You may choose to click the "Reset" button next to each of the settings. Scroll down to the bottom of the screen as shown below: 


You can either click "Clear " button or click "Reset to Nerdio default" button.

Once you click "OK" button, all settings are reset to default, on NMM portal as shown below:
