The Configuration Manager Sustained Engineering team is pleased to release the 1604 update to the System Center Configuration Manager Cmdlet Library. It can be downloaded on the Microsoft Download Center
. In addition to fixes and enhancements to specific cmdlets, this update includes the following important changes.
Detection and error reporting when passing an IResultObject value into a string parameter
Improved error reporting for permissions-related failures
Support for “Fast” mode for some Get cmdlets
Changes to the Update Check logic
New Cmdlets for:
multiple auto deployment rule deployments

working with collections and collection members
configuring conditional access policies for on-premises Exchange
configuring a service connection point
importing a wireless profile, e-mail profile creation, certificate profile creation, user client certificate private key import

New Hybrid management cmdlets for:

Changes to specific cmdlets:
Improved performance for collection member cmdlets and Driver related cmdlets.
Several cmdlets that worked with lockable objects (applications, software updates) were updated to ensure proper locking and reporting. This includes the following cmdlet families: CMApplication, CMSoftwareUpdate, CMBaseline, CMDriver, CMPackage, and CMTaskSequence
General issues fixed:
Site role cmdlets may not validate that a specified connection account user is valid and present in the site.
Some Application and Certificate cmdlets may silently fail if no matching results are found (regression from Fall 2015 release).
Some of these changes apply only to the current branch of System Center Configuration Manager.
You will find more details in the release notes on the Microsoft Download Center
As a heads up we would like to let you know that starting with the next update, the Cmdlet Library will be released with the current branch of System Center Configuration Manager instead of as a standalone package. This will allow us to take advantage of the current branch shipping cadence and update channel, to keep you up to date with new cmdlets.
