We can configure all these new stuff with ConfigMgr cmdlets also ūüôā

#Import ConfigMgr PSH Module Import-Module $env:SMS_ADMIN_UI_PATH.Replace("\bin\i386","\bin\configurationmanager.psd1") #Get the CMSITE SiteCode $SiteCode = Get-PSDrive -PSProvider CMSITE # Change the connection context Set-Location "$($SiteCode.Name):\" #Apply MW only to Task Sequence $Collection = Get-CMDeviceCollection -Name "MW 2 - LOB Servers" Set-CMMaintenanceWindow -CollectionID $Collection.CollectionID -ApplyToTaskSequenceOnly -Name "TEST 2" #Apply MW only to Software Updates $Collection = Get-CMDeviceCollection -Name "MW 2 - LOB Servers" Set-CMMaintenanceWindow -CollectionID $Collection.CollectionID -ApplyToSoftwareUpdateOnly -Name "TEST 2" #Modify existing Maintenance Window $Schedule = New-CMSchedule -DurationCount 1 -DurationInterval Hours -RecurCount 2 -DayOfWeek 4 -WeekOrder First -Start ([Datetime]"13:00") $Collection = Get-CMDeviceCollection -Name "MW 2 - LOB Servers" Set-CMMaintenanceWindow -CollectionID $Collection.CollectionID -Schedule $Schedule -Name "TEST 2" -ApplyToTaskSequenceOnly

Happy Scripting ūüôā
