1: Add an update server.
PS C:\> $Credential = Get-SCRunAsAccount -Name "RunAsAccount01"
PS C:\> Add-SCUpdateServer –ComputerName “WSUSComputer01” –TCPPort 80 –Credential $Credential
The first command gets the Run As account object named RunAsAccount01 and stores the object in the $Credential variable.  

The second command adds update server WSUSComputer01 to VMM, enabling update servicing functionality. As this command is processed, $Credential provides Run As account credentials to Add-SCUpdateServer.
