The Update-MDMDeviceRecoveryPasswordcmdlet forces the specified managed Windows Mobile device to generate a new recovery password and send it to the server in the next two scheduled device management sessions.
This cmdlet is needed only to address device recovery password problems and does not need to be used under normal conditions. Normally, the device recovery password is created and sent to the server when the User Reset of PasswordGroup Policy setting is changed to Enabledwith using MDM Serverselected, or when a password reset operation is completed successfully.
|To enable the password recovery functionality, the Group Policy setting User Reset of Passwordmust be enabled on the device with u sing MDM Serverselected, and additional software must be installed on the device. For more information, see "Configure Password Recovery in MDM" in the MDM Technical Library on TechNet .|
