Detailed Description

The Get-WdsMulticastClient cmdlet gets a list of clients connected to a multicast transmission or namespace. Use this cmdlet to return a list of multicast client IDs to use with the Disconnect-WdsMulticastClient cmdlet. You can specify the transmission by any of the following:

-- The transmission name.

-- The name and architecture of the boot image, with the filename if necessary to identify the image uniquely, if the transmission is based on a boot image in the Windows Deployment Services image store.

-- The boot image object directly, if the transmission is based on a boot image in the Windows Deployment Services image store.

-- The filename, if necessary to identify the image uniquely, and, if the transmission is based on an install image in the Windows Deployment Services image store, the name and group name of the install image the transmission is based on.

-- The install image object directly, if the transmission is based on an install image in the Windows Deployment Store image store.

Parameters

-Architecture<BootImageArchitecture>

Specifies an architecture. This is the architecture of the image with the multicast transmission from which to return the client. Since it is possible to have the same image name for boot images in different architectures, you should specify the architecture to ensure the correct image is used.

-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.

-ImageGroup<String>

Specifies the image group that contains the image from which to return the client. 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.

-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: Return a list of multicast clients by boot image name

This command returns a list of multicast clients by using the boot image name.


PS C:\> Get-WdsMulticastClient -Architecture x86 -BootImageName "Fabrikam Latest setup (x86)"

Example 2: Return a list of multicast clients by boot image object

This example returns a list of multicast clients by using a boot image object.

The first command uses the Get-WdsBootImage cmdlet to obtain a boot image object, and stores the object in the variable named $BootImageObject.

The second command returns a list of client for the boot image object.


PS C:\> $BootImageObject = Get-WdsBootImage -Architecture x86 -ImageName "Fabrikam Latest setup (x86)"
PS C:\> Get-WdsMulticastClient -BootImageObject $BootImageObject

Example 3: Return a list of multicast clients by file name

This command uses the FileName parameter to identify the clients for an install image.


PS C:\> Get-WdsMulticastClient -InstallImageName "Fabrikam Latest with LOB apps" -ImageGroup "Fabrikam Latest Images" -FileName install-3.wim

Example 4: Return a list of multicast clients by file name and object

This example returns a list of multicast clients by using a file name to obtain an object, and then using that object to return a list of clients.

The first command uses the Get-WdsInstallImage cmdlet to obtain an object for an install image, and stores the object in the variable named $InstallImageObject.

The second command returns a list of clients for the object.


PS C:\> $InstallImageObject = Get-WdsInstallImage -ImageName "Fabrikam Latest with LOB apps" -ImageGroup "Fabrikam Latest Images" -FileName install-3.wim
PS C:\> Get-WdsMulticastClient -InstallImageObject $InstallImageObject

Example 5: Return a list of multicast clients by transmission name

This command returns a list of multicast clients for a transmission named Custom WinPE multicast.


PS C:\> Get-WdsMulticastClient -TransmissionName "Custom WinPE multicast"
