Detailed Description

The Copy-WdsInstallImage cmdlet copies install images within an image group. You can only copy images that are within the same image group. To copy images between image groups, use the Export-WdsInstallImage and Import-WdsInstallImage cmdlets.

When you work with multicast transmissions that use an install image as content you can do the following:

-- Create and name an AutoCast transmission.
-- Create and name a ScheduledCast transmission which begins when a preset number of clients are ready to start, at a specific time, or both.
-- Create a ScheduledCast transmission that must be manually started.

An AutoCast transmission is a multicast transmission. When a client requests an install image, the multicast transmission begins. Clients that request the same image are joined to the multicast transmission.

A ScheduledCast transmission is a multicast transmission. When a specified number of clients request an image, or a specified time of day is reached, the multicast transmission begins. If you do not specify either of these conditions, you must manually start the transmission.

When you copy an image, specify the install image by the image name and image group name. You must specify the file name if the image name and image group name do not uniquely identify the install image.

Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

-CimSession<CimSession[]>

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

-ClientCount<UInt32>

Specifies the number of clients that must connect to a transmission. If you also specify MulticastTransmission, this parameter specifies the number of clients that must connect to the ScheduledCast transmission in order for it to begin. The StartScheduledCast parameter can start a transmission before reaching the client count. If you specify the ClientCount parameter with the StartTime parameter, the transmission begins when either a sufficient number of clients connect, or at the time specified by the StartTime parameter.

You may not use this parameter together with the ManualStart parameter.

-ImageGroup<String>

Specifies the name of an image group. This image group contains the image to copy. If you do not specify an image group, and only one image group exists on the server, that image group will be used by default. If more than one image group exists on the server, then you must specify an image group.

-StartTime<DateTime>

Specifies a day and time, in MM/DD/YYYY.hh:mm:ss format, that denotes the start time. When you specify the MulticastTransmission parameter, this parameter denotes the time the ScheduledCast transmission begins. The StartScheduledCast command can start a transmission before reaching the client count. If you specify both the StartTime parameter and the ClientCount parameter, the transmission begins when either a sufficient number of clients connect, or the time specified in this parameter is reached. Do not specify this parameter together with the ManualStart parameter.

-ThrottleLimit<Int32>

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.
