Description

The Get-WsusDynamicCategory cmdlet gets dynamic categories on a Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) server.

Examples

Example 1: Get all dynamic categories for specified servers

PS C:\> Get-WsusServer | Get-WsusDynamicCategory
Name                                     Type                                     Status
----                                     ----                                     ------
5d6a452a-55ba-4e11-adac-85e180bda3d6     ComputerModel                            True
PCI/Device07                             Device                                   True

This command gets all dynamic categories from the current update server by using the Get-WsusServer cmdlet. The command passes the server to the current cmdlet by using the pipeline operator. The current cmdlet gets the available dynamic categories for the update server.

Example 2: Get a named dynamic category

PS C:\> Get-WsusDynamicCategory -DynamicCategoryType Device -Name "PCI/Device07"
Name                                     Type                                     Status
----                                     ----                                     ------
PCI/Device07                             Device                                   True

This command gets the dynamic category named PCI/Device07 that is a Device type.

Example 3: Get dynamic categories by type

PS C:\> Get-WsusDynamicCategory -DynamicCategoryTypeFilter ComputerModel
Name                                     Type                                     Status
----                                     ----                                     ------
5d6a452a-55ba-4e11-adac-85e180bda3d6     ComputerModel                            True

This command gets dynamic categories of the type ComputerModel that are currently available on the local server.
