   -Name <String>
   [-Description <String>]
   [-DefaultSiteCode <String>]

Description

The New-CMBoundaryGroup cmdlet creates a new boundary group. A boundary group is a collection of boundaries.

You can use boundary groups to manage network locations. You must assign boundaries to boundary groups before you can use the boundary group. Boundary groups enable client computers to find a primary site for client assignment, which is referred to as automatic site assignment, and a list of available site systems that have content. For more information about boundaries, see Planning for Boundaries and Boundary Groups in Configuration Manager on TechNet and the New-CMBoundary cmdlet.

Examples

Example 1: Create a new boundary group

PS C:\> New-BoundaryGroup -Name "BGroup05"
CreatedBy:          
CreatedOn           
DefaultSiteCode:
Description:
GroupID:            
MemberCount:        0
ModifiedBy:         
ModifiedOn:         
Name:               BGroup05
SiteSystemCount:

This command creates a new boundary group. After the new boundary group is created, the command displays an unpopulated list of boundary properties. To refresh and see a populated list, use the Get-CMBoundaryGroup cmdlet. The output shown for this example is the latter.
