Az.Avd PowerShell module updated

Sander Rozemuller has updated the Az.Avd PowerShell module. In this update, a bug is fixed in the image management part. There was an issue when a session host has no specific version selected from the compute gallery. This results in a null value which ends in a ‘nosubscriptionfound’ error.

The result now ends in an overview of the session host, the current version, and the latest version available.

You can download the module from the PowerShell Gallery: If you want to participate, check his GitHub repository
