Detailed Description

The Enable-CMSoftwareUpdateAutoDeploymentRule cmdlet enables specified Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager deployment rules for automatic software updates. While a rule is disabled, it does not run in accordance with its schedule and you cannot run it manually.

System Center 2012 Configuration Manager uses rules to manage automatic deployment of software updates. When a rule runs, System Center 2012 Configuration Manager adds updates that qualify for the rule to a software update group. The System Center 2012 Configuration Manager server downloads content files and copies them to distribution points, and then updates client computers.

You can specify rules to enable by ID or by name, or specify a rule object by using the Get-CMSoftwareUpdateAutoDeploymentRule cmdlet. You can use the Disable-CMSoftwareUpdateAutoDeploymentRule cmdlet to disable a rule. To remove a rule permanently, use the Remove-CMSoftwareUpdateAutoDeploymentRule cmdlet.
