Test-CauSetup

Tests whether a cluster is properly set up to apply software updates using CAU.

Syntax

Test-CauSetup
    [[-ClusterName] <String>]
    [[-Credential] <PSCredential>]
    [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Test-CauSetup cmdlet tests whether a failover cluster is properly set up to apply software updates using Cluster-Aware Updating (CAU). The cmdlet performs a Best Practices Analyzer (BPA) scan of the failover cluster and network environment by invoking the ClusterAwareUpdating BPA model that is installed with CAU. To view the results of a BPA scan that is performed by Test-CauSetup, including possible problems and resolution steps, run the Get-BpaResult cmdlet.

You must run the Test-CauSetup cmdlet with local administrative credentials.

Examples

Example 1: Test whether the specified failover cluster is set up for CAU

PS C:\>Test-CauSetup -ClusterName "CONTOSO-FC1"
Test-CauSetup completed successfully. To view the results, run the "Get-BpaResult Microsoft/Windows/ClusterAwareUpdating" Windows PowerShell cmdlet.

This example tests whether the failover cluster named CONTOSO-FC1 is properly set up for CAU.

Optional Parameters

-ClusterName

Specifies the name of the cluster on which to test for proper setup. This parameter is only required when this cmdlet is not run on a failover cluster node, or this cmdlet is used to reference a failover cluster different from where the cmdlet is run.
