The SMS_SoftwareUpdateSource Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) class is an SMS Provider server class, in System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager, that lists all software update sources available on the site, for use in synchronizing metadata during a deployment.

The following syntax is simplified from Managed Object Format (MOF) code and includes all inherited properties.

Class SMS_SoftwareUpdateSource : SMS_BaseClass
{
	String ApplicabilityCondition;
	DateTime DateCreated;
	DateTime DateModified;
	Boolean IsExpired;
	String PublicKeys;
	String ScanMethod;
	String ScanMethodParameters;
	String ScannerToolPkgID;
	UInt32 ScanType;
	UInt32 SourceContentType;
	String SourceSite;
	String UpdateSourceDescription;
	UInt32 UpdateSourceID;
	String UpdateSourceName;
	String UpdateSourceUniqueID;
	String UpdateSourceVersion;
	String UpdateType;
};

Methods

The SMS_SoftwareUpdateSource class does not define any methods.

Note
The ResendObjectToAllSites Method in Class SMS_SoftwareUpdateSource has been deprecated in System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager.

UpdateSourceDescription

Data type: StringAccess type: Read/WriteQualifiers: NoneDescription of the update source.
UpdateSourceID

Data type: UInt32Access type: Read/WriteQualifiers: [key, not_null]The unique ID of the software update source. This ID is unique only for the site.
UpdateSourceName

Data type: StringAccess type: Read/WriteQualifiers: [not_null]Name of the update source.
UpdateSourceUniqueID

Data type: StringAccess type: Read/WriteQualifiers: [not_null]The unique ID for the update source. This ID is unique across sites.

Remarks

There are no special class qualifiers for this class. For more information about both the class qualifiers and the property qualifiers included in the Properties section, see Configuration Manager Class and Property Qualifiers.

Your application uses this class to set or modify the source of a software update so that metadata is properly synchronized during update deployment. Currently, the supported sources for software updates are Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) and ITMU/Offline Catalog.

To use this class, the application creates an SMS_SoftwareUpdateSource object and sets the properties as required for the particular software update and the source.
