Updated: April 29, 2014

Applies To: System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager

Add-SCUpdateServer

Adds a WSUS computer to VMM.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Add-SCUpdateServer [-ComputerName] <String> -Credential <VMMCredential> -TCPPort <UInt32> [-DisableUpdateServerConfiguration] [-JobVariable <String> ] [-PROTipID <Guid> ] [-RunAsynchronously] [-StartUpdateServerSync] [-UseSSLConnection] [-VMMServer <ServerConnection> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Add-SCUpdateServer cmdlet adds a Microsoft Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) computer to Virtual Machine Manager (VMM). Adding a WSUS computer integrates VMM with WSUS setup and enables the update management feature.

Parameters

-ComputerName<String>

Specifies the name of a computer that VMM can uniquely identify on your network. Valid formats are:

-- FQDN
-- IPv4 or IPv6 address
-- NetBIOS name

NOTE: See the examples for a specific cmdlet to determine how that cmdlet specifies the computer name.

-Credential<VMMCredential>

Specifies a credential object or, for some cmdlets, a Run As account object that contains the user name and password of an account that has permission to perform this action. Or, in the case of Restart-SCJob, has permission to complete a restarted task.

For more information about the PSCredential object, type Get-Help Get-Credential.

-DisableUpdateServerConfiguration

Disables the ability to control WSUS configuration settings through VMM. This parameter is used when VMM and System Center Configuration Manager are leveraging the same WSUS server and there can be only one configuration setting authority. Configuration settings are defined as the selection of production classifications, products, languages, and so on.

NOTE: By default, when you add an update server that is a downstream server managed by Configuration Manager, VMM disables its own ability to configure the WSUS settings.

Examples

Example 1: Add an update server

The first command gets the Run As account object named RunAsAccount01, and then stores the object in the $Credential variable.

The second command adds update server WSUSComputer01 to VMM, enabling update servicing functionality. As this command is processed, $Credential provides Run As account credentials to Add-SCUpdateServer.


PS C:\> $Credential = Get-SCRunAsAccount -Name "RunAsAccount01"
PS C:\> Add-SCUpdateServer -ComputerName "WSUSComputer01" -TCPPort 80 -Credential $Credential
