Get-WdsInstallImage
   [-AsJob]

Description

The Get-WdsInstallImage cmdlet gets the properties of install images in a Windows Deployment Services image store. Specify the install image by using the image name and image group name. If no parameter is specified, this cmdlet gets the properties of all install images. If the image name and architecture do not uniquely identify an image, the command returns all images that meet the criteria.

Examples

Example 1: Retrieve images

PS C:\> Get-WdsInstallImage -InstallImageName "Fabrikam Latest with LOB apps" -ImageGroup "Fabrikam Latest Images" -FileName "install-3.wim"

This command retrieves install images named Fabrikam Latest with LOB apps.

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.

-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.
