You can use the vdmadmin command to set the default values for the organizational unit, password expiry, and group membership in Active Directory for clients in kiosk mode.
You must run the vdmadmin command on one of the Connection Server instances in the group that contains the Connection Server instance that clients use to connect to their published desktops.
When you configure defaults for password expiry and Active Directory group membership, these settings are shared by all Connection Server instances in a group.

vdmadmin -Q -clientauth -setdefaults [-b authentication_arguments] [-ou DN] [ -expirepassword | -noexpirepassword ] [-group group_name | -nogroup]
