Add-SCServicingWindowSubscription

Adds a servicing window to a virtual machine, host, or service.

Syntax

Add-SCServicingWindowSubscription [-ServicingWindow] <ServicingWindow> [-JobVariable <String>]
 [-PROTipID <Guid>] [-RunAsynchronously] -Service <Service> [<CommonParameters>]
Add-SCServicingWindowSubscription [-ServicingWindow] <ServicingWindow> [-JobVariable <String>]
 [-PROTipID <Guid>] [-RunAsynchronously] -VM <VM> [<CommonParameters>]
Add-SCServicingWindowSubscription [-ServicingWindow] <ServicingWindow> [-JobVariable <String>]
 [-PROTipID <Guid>] [-RunAsynchronously] -VMHost <Host> [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Add-SCServicingWindowSubscription cmdlet adds a servicing window to a virtual machine, host, or service. After a servicing window is assigned to an object, users can schedule maintenance work to be done within the servicing window by using a third-party scheduling system.

Examples

Example 1: Subscribe all virtual machines owned by a specific user to a servicing window

PS C:\> $SvcWindow = Get-SCServicingWindow -Name "Backup Staging A"
PS C:\> $VMs = Get-SCVirtualMachine | where {$_.Owner -eq "Contoso\ReneeLo"} 
PS C:\> Add-SCServicingWindowSubscription -ServicingWindow $SvcWindow -VM $VMs

The first command gets the servicing window object named Backup Staging A and stores the object in the $SvcWindow variable.

The second command gets all virtual machine objects, selects only the virtual machines that are owned by Contoso\ReneeLo and then stores those objects in the $VMs variable.

The last command subscribes the virtual machines stored in $VMs to the servicing window stored in $SvcWindow.

Example 2: Subscribe all virtual machines owned by a specific user to a servicing window using the pipeline operator

PS C:\> $SvcWindow = Get-SCServicingWindow -Name "Test Servers Group 3"
PS C:\> Get-SCVirtualMachine | where {$_.Owner -eq "Contoso\NevenSokec"} | Add-SCServicingWindowSubscription -ServicingWindow $SvcWindow

The first command gets the servicing window object named Test Servers Group 3 and stores the object in the $SvcWindow variable.

The second command gets all virtual machine objects, selects only the virtual machines that are owned by Contoso\ReneeLo and then uses the pipeline operator to pass the virtual machines to the Add-SCServicingWindowSubscription cmdlet, which subscribes each virtual machine that is passed to it to the servicing window stored in $SvcWindow.
