Detailed 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.
