Detailed Description

The Start-CMContentDistribution cmdlet copies content from the content library on a site server to the content library on the distribution points.

You can use this cmdlet to distribute several types of content, including application deployment types, packages, deployment packages, driver packages, operating system images, operating system installers, boot images, and task sequences. You can distribute the content to distribution points, distribution point groups, or collections associated with distribution point groups.
