Detailed Description

The Start-CMPackageDeployment cmdlet starts deployment of a specified software package to computers that belong to a Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager collection. You can choose when the package becomes available and when the package deployment expires. You can specify whether System Center 2012 Configuration Manager deploys the package only once or repeatedly and what happens when installation fails for a computer.

Examples

Example 1: Start a recurring deployment

This command starts deployment for a named package to the collection named All Systems for the device program named DPM. The command specifies a start day and start time. The command includes a descriptive comment. The Rerun parameter has a value of $True and the command specifies a recur value of seven and a recur unit of Days, so deployment reruns every seven days. The deployment uses metered network. The deployment uses UTC time.


PS C:\> Start-CMPackageDeployment -CollectionName "All Systems" -DeviceProgramName "DPM" -PackageName "User State Migration Tool for Windows 8" -Comment "DPM for all systems." -DeploymentStartDay 2012/10/26 -DeploymentStartTime 12:12 -RecurUnit Days -RecurValue 7 -Rerun $True -UseMeteredNetwork $True -UseUtc $True 

Example 2: Start a recurring deployment for an available package

This command starts deployment for a named package to the collection named Western Computers for the device program named DPM. The command includes a descriptive comment. The command specifies Available as the DeployPurpose, therefor users can decide whether to install this software. The Rerun parameter has a value of $True. The deployment uses UTC time.


PS C:\> Start-CMPackageDeployment -CollectionName "Western Computers" -DeviceProgramName "DPM" -PackageName "User State Migration Tool for Windows 8" -Comment "Deployment for Western office." -DeployPurpose Available -Rerun $True -UseUtc $True 

Example 3: Start a deployment for a standard program

This command starts a deployment of a package named User State Migration Tool for Windows 8 to the collection named All Systems for the standard program named SPM. The command does not allow computers to use shared content.


PS C:\> Start-CMPackageDeployment -CollectionName "All Systems" -PackageName "User State Migration Tool for Windows 8" -StandardProgramName "SPM" AllowSharedContent $False
