Description

The Unblock-CMDevice cmdlet unblocks one or more 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.

Note

Configuration Manager cmdlets must be run from the Configuration Manager site drive. The examples in this article use the site name XYZ. For more information, see the getting started documentation.

Examples

Example 1: Unblock a device

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

This command unblocks the device named Test-DIST02.

Example 2: Get a device and unblock it

PS XYZ:\> 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.
