Examples

Example 1: Subscribe all virtual machines owned by a specific user to a servicing window

The first command gets the servicing window object named Backup Staging A, and then stores the object in the $SvcWindow variable.

The second command gets all virtual machine objects, selects only the virtual machines that are owned by Contoso\ReneeLo, and then stores those objects in the $VMs variable.

The last command subscribes the virtual machines stored in $VMs to the servicing window stored in $SvcWindow.


PS C:\> $SvcWindow = Get-SCServicingWindow -Name "Backup Staging A"
PS C:\> $VMs = Get-SCVirtualMachine | where {$_.Owner -eq "Contoso\ReneeLo"}
PS C:\> Add-SCServicingWindowSubscription -ServicingWindow $SvcWindow -VM $VMs

Example 2: Subscribe all virtual machines owned by a specific user to a servicing window using the pipeline operator

The first command gets the servicing window object named Test Servers Group 3, and then stores the object in the $SvcWindow variable.

The second command gets all virtual machine objects, selects only the virtual machines that are owned by Contoso\ReneeLo, and then uses the pipeline operator to pass the virtual machines to the Add-SCServicingWindowSubscription cmdlet. Add-SCServicingWindowSubscription subscribes each virtual machine that is passed to it to the servicing window stored in $SvcWindow.


PS C:\> $SvcWindow = Get-SCServicingWindow -Name "Test Servers Group 3"
PS C:\> Get-SCVirtualMachine | where {$_.Owner -eq "Contoso\NevenSokec"} | Add-SCServicingWindowSubscription -ServicingWindow $SvcWindow
