Adds a WSUS computer to VMM.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Add-SCUpdateServer [-ComputerName] <String> -Credential <VMMCredential> -TCPPort <UInt32> [-DisableUpdateServerConfiguration] [-JobVariable <String> ] [-PROTipID <Guid]> ] [-RunAsynchronously] [-StartUpdateServerSync] [-UseSSLConnection] [-VMMServer <ServerConnection> ] [ <CommonParameters>]

-Credential<VMMCredential>

Specifies a credential object or, for some cmdlets, a Run As account object that contains the user name and password of an account that has permission to perform this action.

-DisableUpdateServerConfiguration

Indicates that this cmdlet disables the ability to control WSUS configuration settings through VMM. Use this parameter when VMM and System Center Configuration Manager are leveraging the same WSUS server and there can be only one configuration setting authority. Configuration settings are defined as the selection of production classifications, products, languages, and so on.

By default, when you add an update server that is a downstream server that Configuration Manager manages, VMM disables its own ability to configure the WSUS settings.

Examples

Example 1: Add an update server

The first command gets the Run As account object named RunAsAccount01, and then stores the object in the $Credential variable.

The second command adds update server WSUSComputer01 to VMM, which enables update servicing functionality. This command specifies $Credential as the Run As account credentials.


PS C:\> $Credential = Get-SCRunAsAccount -Name "RunAsAccount01"
PS C:\> Add-SCUpdateServer -ComputerName "WSUSComputer01" -TCPPort 80 -Credential $Credential
