Description

The Unblock-CMDevice cmdlet unblocks one or more Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager client devices. You must unblock a device from the client's assigned site. You cannot unblock the device from sites higher in the hierarchy.

Examples

Example 1: Unblock a device

PS C:\>Unbock-CMDevice -DeviceName "Test-DIST02"

This command unblocks the device named Test-DIST02.

Example 2: Get a device and unblock it

PS C:\> Get-CMDevice -Name "WIN10-86-33" | Unblock-CMDevice

This command gets the device object named WIN10-86-33 and uses the pipeline operator to pass the object to Unblock-CMDevice, which unblocks the device object.
