Type:SwitchParameter

-Index

When you add this parameter, the site extracts a single index image from a multi-index image. It then places the new image in the same source folder as the original image in the upgrade package source files.

Using this option results in a smaller image file, and faster offline servicing. It also supports the process to Optimize image servicing, for a smaller image file after applying software updates.
