Detailed Description

The Set-WdsInstallImage cmdlet modifies the properties of an install image in the Windows Deployment Services image store. Use this cmdlet to do any of the following:

-- Change the name of an install image.
-- Change the description of an install image.
-- Set the display order of an install image in the image menu.
-- Specify an answer file for unattended setup of an install image.
-- Set permissions for users or groups to access the image.

When you work with multicast transmissions that use an install image as content, you can:

-- 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 manually started ScheduledCast transmission.
-- Start a ScheduledCast transmission.
-- Stop a multicast transmission in progress, and then either disconnect clients immediately, or allow them to finish, but not allow any new clients to join.

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.

Specify the install image by using the image name and image group name. If the image name and image group name do not uniquely identify the install image, specify the file name.

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 the MulticastTransmission parameter, the client count specifies the number of clients that must connect to the ScheduledCast transmission in order for it to begin. Use the StartScheduledCast parameter to begin a transmission before reaching the client count. If you specify the ClientCount parameter and the StartTime parameter, the transmission begins when either a sufficient number of clients have connected or at the time specified by the StartTime parameter.

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

-StartTime<DateTime>

Specifies a day and time, in MM/DD/YYYY.hh:mm:ss format, that denotes the start time. If 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.

-StopMulticastTransmission

Indicates that Windows Deployment Services stop the multicast transmission of the image. If you specify the Force parameter, the cmdlet disconnects any clients connected to the multicast transmission. If you do not specify the Force parameter, and the transmission is autocast, current clients finish receiving the content, but no additional clients can join the transmission.

-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.
