Description

The Start-CMClientSettingDeployment cmdlet deploys client settings to devices in a Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager collection. Specify the client setting object by using its name or ID, or you can use the Get-CMClientSetting cmdlet to get a client setting object. Specify the collection to apply the settings to by using its name or ID, or you can use the Get-CMDeviceCollection cmdlet to get a device collection.

For more information about client settings, see About Client Settings in Configuration Manager on TechNet.

Examples

Example 1: Deploy a client setting object by using its ID to a named collection

PS C:\> Start-CMClientSettingDeployment -ClientSettingId "CSI1023" -CollectionName "General Computer Collection"

This command starts deployment of the client setting object that has the ID CSI1023 for the collection named General Computer Collection.

Example 2: Deploy a client setting object by using a variable

PS C:\> $CSID = Get-CMClientSetting -Id "CSI1023"
PS C:\> Start-CMClientSettingDeployment -ClientSetting $CSID -CollectionName "General Computer Collection"

The first command gets a client setting object that has the ID CSI1023, and saves it in the $CSID variable.

The second command starts deployment of the client setting object in the $CSID variable to the collection named General Computer Collection.
