Examples

Example 1: Enable the proxy setting on an update server

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

The second command creates an array named $Categories and populates the array with two products.

The third command creates an array named $Classification and populates the array with two update classifications.

The fourth command creates an array named $Languages and populates the array with two supported update languages, English and Brazilian Portuguese.

The last command enables the proxy setting for the update server stored in $UpdateServer, sets the proxy address and port, and sets the update categories, classifications, and languages to synchronize.


PS C:\> $UpdateServer = Get-SCUpdateServer -ComputerName "WSUSComputer01"
PS C:\> $Categories = @("SQL Server", "Windows")
PS C:\> $Classifications = @("Security Updates", "Service Packs")
PS C:\> $Languages = @("en", "pt-br")
PS C:\> Set-SCUpdateServer -UpdateServer $UpdateServer -EnableProxy -ProxyServerName "proxy.contoso.com" -ProxyServerPort "88" -IsProxyAccessAnonymous $True -UpdateCategories $Categories -UpdateClassifications $Classifications -UpdateLanguages $Languages

Example 2: Specify a new product type setting for an update server

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

The second command enables the service packs update classification for the update server stored in $UpdateServer.


PS C:\> $UpdateServer = Get-SCUpdateServer -ComputerName "WSUSComputer01"
PS C:\> Set-SCUpdateServer -UpdateServer $UpdateServer -UpdateClassifications "Service Packs"
