Set-PatchBaseline

This cmdlet modifies the properties of a patch baseline. You can specify explicitly the patches you want to include in the baseline through the IncludePatch parameter. Also, you can use the SearchPatch* parameters to filter the patches you want to include by their properties, product, vendor, severity, and release date. Note that patches that have been excluded through the ExcludePatch parameter will not be included even if they correspond to the filter defined by the SearchPatch* parameters.

The patches supplied through the IncludePatch parameter are stored in the InclPatches property of the baseline. These patches are also added in the baseline's CurrentPatches property that contains the patches specified by the search criteria parameters and the patches provided by the IncludePatch parameter. Patches specified by the ExcludePatch parameter are not included in the CurrentPatches property of a baseline.
