The community is equivalent to sharing knowledge and helping each other. One of those super motivated community members is Carsten Rachfal. I finally met him at the MVP summit. Somewhere during that week we had to walk from one building to another. I noticed has was dragging along a mobile office. Carsten explained that it contained his complete datacenter. Or to be more precise, a laptop with some crazy specs that contained the complete Cloud OS. He did a lot of work creating a completely automated installation of all the Cloud OS components with HA and perform functional configuration to end up with an environment that was demo or (if it wasn’t for the hardware) even production ready. No single click needed after the deployment process. There was one piece missing in his complete puzzle.
He had asked me a couple of times if I had a solution to complete his masterwork. But that is another thing about the community. Time. Somehow you never have enough of it. This week another reminder popped up in a DL and I forced it to the top of my priority list. His question was
I want automate the configuration of a high available RD Gateway for Windows Azure Pack Remote Console. How can I set the RD Gateway server farm members with PowerShell?
Carsten is a smart man. He has been struggling with this issue for a couple of months and it was going to complete his masterwork. He had looked at all the possible angles already.
