Description

The Set-WsusDynamicCategory cmdlet sets the synchronization status of a dynamic category in a specified Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) server.

Examples

Example 1: Set the synchronization status of a dynamic category

PS C:\> Get-WsusDynamicCategory -DynamicCategoryType Device -Name "PCI/Device07" | Set-WsusDynamicCategory -Status Blocked

This command gets a dynamic category from the local server by using the Get-WsusDynamicCategory cmdlet. The command passes the dynamic category to the current cmdlet by using the pipeline operator. The current cmdlet sets the synchronization status to Blocked. This value means that no updates are synchronized for this dynamic category.

Required Parameters

-DynamicCategoryType

Specifies the type of the dynamic category that this cmdlet modifies. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • ComputerModel
  • Device
  • Application
Type:DynamicCategoryType

Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-InputObject

Specifies a dynamic category object. This cmdlet modifies the synchronization settings for the dynamic category that this parameter specifies. To obtain a dynamic category, use the Get-WsusDynamicCategory cmdlet.

Type:IDynamicCategory
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Name

Specifies the name of the dynamic category to modify.
