SYNTAX

AllComputers (Default)

Get-WsusComputer [-UpdateServer <IUpdateServer>] [-All] [<CommonParameters>]

Scoped

Get-WsusComputer [-UpdateServer <IUpdateServer>] [-NameIncludes <String>]
 [-ComputerTargetGroups <StringCollection>] [-IncludeSubgroups]
 [-ComputerUpdateStatus <WsusUpdateInstallationState>]
 [-ExcludedInstallationStates <UpdateInstallationStates[]>]
 [-IncludedInstallationStates <UpdateInstallationStates[]>] [-FromLastSyncTime <DateTime>]
 [-ToLastSyncTime <DateTime>] [-FromLastReportedStatusTime <DateTime>] [-ToLastReportedStatusTime <DateTime>]
 [-IncludeDownstreamComputerTargets] [-RequestedTargetGroupNames <StringCollection>] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Get-WsusComputer cmdlet gets one or more Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) computers based on the specified filtering criteria such as operating system, computer name, update installation status, last reported status time, and etcetera.

If the Get-WsusServer cmdlet is run and the resulting IUpdateServer object is passed into this cmdlet, then the specified server will be used rather than the local server.

This cmdlet can be passed into the Add-WsusComputer cmdlet.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Get all client computers

PS C:\> Get-WsusComputer -All
Computer                      IP Address                    Operating System              Last Status Report 
--------                      ----------                    ----------------              ------------------ 
contoso                       XXXX:XXXX:XX:X:XXXX:XXX:XXXX: Windows Server 2008           6/2/2010 12:00:00 AM 
                              XXXX                          Enterprise Edition (full                                                             installation)

This command gets all client computers.

Example 2: Get client computers that have names that contain a string

PS C:\> Get-WsusComputer -NameIncludes "contoso"
Computer                      IP Address                    Operating System              Last Status Report 
--------                      ----------                    ----------------              ------------------ 
contoso                       XXXX:XXXX:XX:X:XXXX:XXX:XXXX: Windows Server 2008           6/2/2010 12:00:00 AM 
                              XXXX                          Enterprise Edition (full 
                                                            installation)

This command gets the client computer whose name includes contoso.

Example 3: Get client computers by specifying dates

PS C:\> Get-WsusComputer -FromLastReportedStatusTime 6/1/10 -ToLastReportedStatusTime 6/30/10
Computer                      IP Address                    Operating System              Last Status Report 
--------                      ----------                    ----------------              ------------------ 
contoso                       XXXX:XXXX:XX:X:XXXX:XXX:XXXX: Windows Server 2008           6/2/2010 12:00:00 AM 
                              XXXX                          Enterprise Edition (full 
                                                            installation)

This command gets all client computers with a last reported status date and time between June 1, 2010 and June 30, 2010.
