Description

The Enable-WmsScheduledUpdate cmdlet enables the specified computer to periodically disable the disk protection feature so that scheduled updates can be applied. After updates are applied, the disk protection feature is automatically re-enabled.

Examples

Example 1: Enable scheduled updates

PS C:\> Enable-WmsScheduledUpdate -Server "Sample.microsoft.com" -AutomaticUpdateMode WindowsOnly -HourToScheduleUpdates 3 -CustomScript "C:\MyApps\SampleApp.exe" -MaxTimeAllowedForCustomScript 30 -ReturnState PreviousState
IsScheduleUpdateEnabled       : True
AutomaticUpdateMode           : WindowsOnly
HourToScheduleUpdates         : 3
CustomScript                  : c:\myapps\sampleapp.exe
MaxTimeAllowedForCustomScript : 30
ReturnState                   : PreviousState

This command enables the computer Sample.microsoft.com to switch disk protection to passive mode (reboot) at 3 AM to apply any pending Windows updates and run the application SampleApp.exe. The system then returns to the power/running state it was in before 3 AM.
