Examples

1: Subscribe all virtual machines owned by a specific user to a servicing window.

The first command gets the servicing window object named Backup Staging A and stores the object in the $SvcWindow variable.

The second command gets all virtual machine objects, selects only the virtual machines that are owned by Contoso\ReneeLo. and then stores those objects in the $VMs variable.

The last command subscribes the virtual machines stored in $VMs to the servicing window stored in $SvcWindow.


PS C:\> $SvcWindow = Get-SCServicingWindow -Name "Backup Staging A"PS C:\> $VMs = Get-SCVirtualMachine | where {$_.Owner -eq "Contoso\ReneeLo"}PS C:\> Add-SCServicingWindowSubscription -ServicingWindow $SvcWindow -VM $VMs

2: Subscribe all virtual machines owned by a specific user to a servicing window using the pipeline operator.

The first command gets the servicing window object named Test Servers Group 3 and stores the object in the $SvcWindow variable.

The second command gets all virtual machine objects, selects only the virtual machines that are owned by Contoso\ReneeLo and then uses the pipeline operator to pass the virtual machines to the Add-SCServicingWindowSubscription cmdlet. Add-SCServicingWindowSubscription subscribes each virtual machine that is passed to it to the servicing window stored in $SvcWindow.


PS C:\> $SvcWindow = Get-SCServicingWindow -Name "Test Servers Group 3"PS C:\> Get-SCVirtualMachine | where {$_.Owner -eq "Contoso\NevenSokec"} | Add-SCServicingWindowSubscription -ServicingWindow $SvcWindow
