Start-SCUpdateServerSynchronization

Updated: April 29, 2014

Applies To: System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager

Start-SCUpdateServerSynchronization

Initiates a synchronization between the VMM update server and WSUS.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Start-SCUpdateServerSynchronization [-UpdateServer] <UpdateServer> [-ForceFullUpdateCatalogImport] [-JobVariable <String> ] [-PROTipID <Guid> ] [-RunAsynchronously] [-VMMServer <ServerConnection> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Start-SCUpdateServerSynchronization cmdlet initiates a synchronization between the Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) update server and Windows Server Update Services (WSUS).

The first time this synchronization runs, it imports the full WSUS update catalog into VMM. On subsequent synchronizations, an incremental import is performed by default. However, you can force a full catalog import at any time by using Start-SCUpdateServerSynchronization with the ForceFullUpdateCatalogImport parameter.

Parameters

-ForceFullUpdateCatalogImport

Indicates that the VMM update server will import the full update catalog from Windows Server Update Services. On subsequent synchronizations, an incremental import of the catalog is the default import.

Examples

Example 1: Start an update server synchronization

The first command gets the update server object named WSUSComputer01, and then stores the object in the $UpdateServer variable.

The second command starts synchronization between WSUSComputer01 and Microsoft Update.


PS C:\> $UpdateServer = Get-SCUpdateServer -ComputerName "WSUSComputer01"
PS C:\> Start-SCUpdateServerSynchronization -UpdateServer $UpdateServer

Example 2: Force a full import of the Microsoft Update Catalog

The first command gets the update server object named WSUSComputer01, and then stores the object in the $UpdateServer variable.

The second command starts synchronization between WSUSComputer01 and Microsoft update, specifying that the full catalog is imported.


PS C:\> $UpdateServer = Get-SCUpdateServer -ComputerName "WSUSComputer01"
PS C:\> Start-SCUpdateServerSynchronization -UpdateServer $UpdateServer -ForceFullUpdateCatalogImport
