Registers a CAU software updating plug-in on the local computer.
Register-CauPlugin [-Path] <String> [-WhatIf] [-Confirm] [<CommonParameters>]
The Register-CauPlugin cmdlet registers a Cluster-Aware Updating (CAU) software updating plug-in on the local computer.
CAU always uses a plug-in when performing updates, although you do not need to register a plug-in because CAU uses the Microsoft.WindowsUpdatePlugin plug-in by default. This plug-in communicates with the Windows Update Agent software resident on each node, the same software that is used when updates are downloaded from Windows Update or Microsoft Update, or from a Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) server. For more information about how plug-ins work in CAU, see How CAU Plug-ins Work.
Example 1: Register a specific plug-in located in the specified folder
PS C:\> Register-CauPlugin -Path "C:\PluginDevelopment\Plugin01.dll" -Force
The command registers a plug-in called Plugin01.dll located in the C:\PluginDevelopment folder. Because the command specifies the Force parameter, the cmdlet runs without displaying confirmation prompts.
Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.
