Modify the management information related to a resource.

          [-Credential PSCredential] [-Dialect Uri] [-FilePath File]
            [-SessionOption hashtable] [-ValueSet hashtable] [CommonParameters]

   -ApplicationName string
      The application name in the connection. The default Application Name is "WSMAN"
      The complete identifier for the remote endpoint is in the following format:
      For example:

      IIS will forward requests with this endpoint to the specified application.

      This default setting of "WSMAN" is appropriate for most uses. This parameter
      is designed to be used when numerous computers establish remote connections to
      one computer that is running PowerShell.
      In this case, IIS hosts Web Services for Management (WS-Management) for efficiency.

   -Authentication Authentication
      The authentication mechanism to be used at the server. Possible values are:
      - Basic      Send username and password in clear text.
      - Default    Use the authentication method implemented by WS-Management protocol. This is the default.
      - Digest     Challenge-response scheme using a server-specified data string for the challenge.
      - Kerberos   Authenticate by using Kerberos certificates.
      - Negotiate  Challenge-response that negotiates an authentication scheme.
                    e.g. Kerberos protocol or NTLM.
      - CredSSP    Use Credential Security Service Provider (CredSSP) authentication, delegate
                   credentials to a remote computer. This increases the security risk, if the remote 
                   computer is compromised, the credentials could be used to control the network session.

   -ComputerName string
      The computer against which you want to run the management operation.
      A fully qualified domain name, NetBIOS name, or an IP address.
      Use the local computer name, localhost, or a dot (.) to specify the local computer.
      The local computer is the default. When the remote computer is in a different domain,
      use a fully qualified domain name. You can pipe a value for ComputerName.
   -ConnectionURI Uri
      The connection endpoint. The format of this string is: 
      The following string is a properly formatted value for this parameter: 
         http://Server01:8080/WSMAN. The URI must be fully qualified .
   -Credential PSCredential
      A user account that has permission to perform this action. default=current user.
      e.g. "User01", "Domain01\User01", or "". Or a PSCredential object, such as 
      returned by the Get-Credential cmdlet. When you type a user name, you will be prompted for a password.

   -Dialect Uri
      The dialect to use in the filter predicate.
      Any dialect that is supported by the remote service.
      The following 3 aliases can be used for the dialect URI:
       - WQL 
       - Selector
       - Association

   -FilePath File
The path of a file that is used to update a management resource. Specify the management resource with -ResourceURI and -SelectorSet. For example, the following command uses -FilePath: invoke-wsmanaction -action stopservice -resourceuri wmicimv2/Win32_Service -SelectorSet @{Name="spooler"} -FilePath:c:\input.xml -authentication default The command above calls the StopService method on the Spooler service by using input from a file. The file, Input.xml, contains the following content: <p:StopService_INPUT xmlns:p=""/> -Fragment string A section inside the instance that is to be updated or retrieved. For example, to get the status of a spooler service, specify "-Fragment Status". -OptionSet hashtable Pass a set of switches to the service to modify or refine the nature of the request. These are similar to switches used in command-line shells in that they are service specific. Any number of options can be specified. The following example demonstrates the syntax that passes the values 1, 2, and 3 for the a, b, and c parameters: -OptionSet @{a=1;b=2;c=3} -Port int The port to use when the client connects to the WinRM service. When the transport is HTTP, the default port is 80. When the transport is HTTPS, the default port is 443. When you use HTTPS as the transport, the value of the -ComputerName parameter must match the server's certificate common name (CN). However, if the SkipCNCheck parameter is specified as part of the SessionOption parameter, then the certificate common name of the server does not have to match the host name of the server. The SkipCNCheck parameter should be used only for trusted computers. -ResourceURI Uri The Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) of the resource class or instance. The URI is used to identify a specific type of resource, such as disks or processes, on a computer. A URI consists of a prefix and a path to a resource. For example: -SelectorSet hashtable A set of value pairs that are used to select particular management resource instances. The SelectorSet parameter is used when more than one instance of the resource exists. The value of the SelectorSet parameter must be a hash table. The following example shows how to enter a value for this parameter: -SelectorSet @{Name="WinRM";ID="yyy"} -SessionOption hashtable Define a set of extended options for the WS-Management session. Enter a SessionOption object that you create by using New-WSManSessionOption. -UseSSL Use the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol to establish a connection to the remote computer. By default, SSL is not used. WS-Management encrypts all PowerShell content that is transmitted over the network. The UseSSL parameter lets you specify the additional protection of HTTPS instead of HTTP. This will fail if SSL is not available on the port that is used for the connection. -ValueSet hashtable
A hash table that helps modify a management resource. Specify the management resource with -ResourceURI and -SelectorSet. The value of -ValueSet must be a hash table.

Standard Aliases for Set-WSManInstance: swmi

n.b. The -ValueSet parameter is case-sensitive, so enabled != Enabled


Disable the https listener on the local computer :

PS C:\> set-wsmaninstance -resourceuri winrm/config/listener -selectorset @{address="*";transport="https"} -valueset

Set the MaxEnvelopeSizekb value to 200 on the local computer:

PS C:\> set-wsmaninstance -resourceuri winrm/config -ValueSet @{MaxEnvelopeSizekb = "200"}

Disable the https listener on the remote computer Server64:

PS C:\> set-wsmaninstance -resourceuri winrm/config/listener -computername Server64 -selectorset @{address="*";transport="https"} -valueset @{Enabled="false"}
