Test-CauSetup

Tests whether a cluster is properly set up to apply software updates using Cluster-Aware Updating (CAU).

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Test-CauSetup [[-ClusterName] <String> ] [[-Credential] <PSCredential> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Test-CauSetup cmdlet tests whether a failover cluster is properly set up to apply software updates using Cluster-Aware Updating (CAU). The cmdlet performs a Best Practices Analyzer (BPA) scan of the failover cluster and network environment by invoking the ClusterAwareUpdating BPA model that is installed with CAU. To view the results of a BPA scan that is performed by Test-CauSetup, including possible problems and resolution steps, run the Get-BpaResult cmdlet.

Note: You must run Test-CauSetup with local administrative credentials.
