Detailed Description

The Get-WdsClient cmdlet gets client devices from the Pending Device database, or pre-staged clients from Active Directory® Domain Services (AD DS) or the stand-alone server device database.

You can get client devices or pre-staged clients by specifying a name or an ID. An ID is a GUID, media access control (MAC) address, or Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) identifier associated with the computer.

When you get clients from AD DS, you can specify a client within AD DS domain of the server that runs Windows Deployment Services, within a specified domain, or anywhere in the current AD DS forest.

To get pre-staged clients from the Pending Devices database, specify whether to get devices that are approved, denied, or pending.

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.

-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.

Examples

Example 1: Get a device in a domain by specifying its ID

This command gets the device that has the specified ID. The command looks for this device in the AD DS domain named TSQA.Contoso.com.


PS C:\> Get-WdsClient -DeviceID "5a7a1def-2e1f-4a7b-a792-ae5275b6ef92" -Domain -DomainName "TSQA.Contoso.com"

Example 2: Get a device in a domain by specifying its ID

This command gets the device named TSQA076. The command looks for this device in the AD DS domain named TSQA.Contoso.com.


PS C:\> Get-WdsClient -DeviceName "TSQA076" -Domain "TSQA.Contoso.com"

Example 3: Get a device in the current forest by specifying its ID

This command gets the device that has the specified ID. The command looks for this device in the current AD DS forest.


PS C:\> Get-WdsClient -DeviceID "5a7a1def-2e1f-4a7b-a792-ae5275b6ef92" -SearchForest

Example 4: Get a device in the current forest by specifying its name

This command gets the device named TSQA022. The command looks for this device in the current AD DS forest.


PS C:\> Get-WdsClient -DeviceName "TSQA022" -SearchForest

Example 5: Get all pending devices

This command gets all clients that have a status of Pending in the Pending Devices database.


PS C:\> Get-WdsClient -PendingClientStatus Pending

Example 6: Get a pending device by specifying its request ID

This command gets the client that has the request ID 21 in the Pending Devices database.


PS C:\> Get-WdsClient -RequestId 21
