Save-CMSoftwareUpdate - Add parameter to specify download source path (UNC\Network)
When using this cmdlet to download updates from an update group into an update package, where is the download source and is it possible to specify a custom location?
For example, if I wanted to specify my download source as a WSUS content folder on another server I could I do something like this.
Save-CMSoftwareUpdate -SoftwareUpdateGroupName $mySUG -DeploymentPackageName $mySUPkg -SoftwareUpdateLanguage "English" -DownloadLocation "\\myWsusServer\wsuscontent"
This would be helpful in the following scenario, let's say we have a stand-alone primary that cannot be connected to the internet due to a business requirement, but has access to an upstream WSUS server that downloads updates and stores them locally. Instead of using the DSUW to specify a download source path, I would like to use this cmdlet instead.

Hi Adam, I appreciate your response.
Yes. When I initiate the download software updates wizard from the admin console, on the 'Download Location' step, I have the option to select 'Download software updates from a location on my network:' and then specify a network path. (i.e., \\servername\folderpath)

Thanks for your feedback. Does the UI allow you to do this?
