Deny-WdsClient

Denies approval for clients.

Syntax

Deny-WdsClient
    [-RequestID <UInt32>]
    [-CimSession <CimSession[]>]
    [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>]
    [-AsJob]
    [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Deny-WdsClient cmdlet denies approval for clients. Unknown clients require approval before the server that runs Windows Deployment Services boots the client in Pre-Boot Execution Environment (PXE). Use the Approve-WdsClient cmdlet to approve clients.

You can specify a single device to deny by using a request ID. The server that runs Windows Deployment Services allocates a request ID to a device. If you do not specify a client to deny, the cmdlet denies approval for all pending clients.

Examples

Example 1: Deny approval for all pending clients

PS C:\> Deny-WdsClient

This command denies approval for all pending pre-staged clients.

Example 2: Deny approval for a pending client

PS C:\>Deny-WdsClient -RequestID 5

This command denies approval for the pre-staged client that has the specified request ID.

Optional Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-CimSession

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

Type:CimSession[]
Aliases:Session
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-RequestID

Specifies the request ID that the server that runs Windows Deployment Services allocates to a device in the Pending Device database. To find the Request ID, use the Get-WdsClient cmdlet and look for the RequestId property of the client. If you do not specify this parameter, the cmdlet denies all devices.

Type:UInt32
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName, ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ThrottleLimit

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

Type:Int32

Default value:None
