The System Center Configuration Manager Cmdlet Library installs and updates the Windows PowerShell module for System Center Configuration Manager. A new update is available (5.0.8373.1189) that fixes some problems with earlier cmdlets.
The System Center Configuration Manager Cmdlet Library lets you manage a Configuration Manager hierarchy by using Windows PowerShell cmdlets and scripts. Microsoft regularly updates the cmdlets for Configuration Manager. The System Center Configuration Manager Cmdlet Library checks for library updates on a daily basis, and notifies you to download the updated library.
The following versions of Configuration Manager are supported in this release:
- System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP2
- System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager SP1
- System Center Configuration Manager (current branch)
In previous releases, the check for an updated version of the Cmdlet Library was performed on cmdlet execution if a certain time limit had passed. This check now occurs only when a new CMDrive instance is created. This change was made to reduce the number of warnings that may be written when there is an update available. For more information on this feature and how to configure it, please see the documentation at https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn958404.
