Show or disable unused Citrix Delivery Groups

Show how recently (in number of days) delivery groups have had sessions launched from them, by checking the last used property for each machine in a delivery group.
Specify the minimum number of days last launched to show only delivery groups which have not had sessions launched within that number of days and optionally disable them. Specify 0 days to show all delivery groups.

Run on a Delivery Controller or where the CVAD PowerShell snapins are available, e.g. Studio is installed.

.SYNOPSIS

Show Citrix Delivery Groups not used in the last n days and optionally disable them

.DETAILS

Delivery groups themselves do not have a last used property, this comes from the machines in a delivery group so a delivery group could have been used more recently than reported but the machine(s) used been deleted or moved to another deployment group

.PARAMETER daysNotAccessed

The number of days that the delivery group has not had a session launched from it

.PARAMETER disable

Disable delivery groups that have not had a session launched in the number of days specified by -daysNotAccessed

.PARAMETER ddc

The delivery controller to connect to. If not specified the local machine will be used.

.CONTEXT

Computer (but only on a Citrix Delivery Controller)
