Description

The Get-CMSoftwareUpdateBasedClientInstallation cmdlet gets a client installation hosted on a software update point for Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager.

System Center Configuration Manager publishes the System Center Configuration Manager client to a software update point. This site system role can install the client on computers that do not already have it or upgrade existing clients.

To use software update point based installation, you must use the same Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) server for both client installation and software updates. This server must be the active software update point in a primary site.

Examples

Example 1: Get a client installation

PS C:\> Get-CMSoftwareUpdateBasedClientInstallation -SiteCode "CM1"

This command gets the client installation for the site that has the site code CM1.
