Detailed Description

The Set-AdminScope command allows the description of scopes to be updated. You cannot modify the built-in ‘All’ scope.

To change the contents of a scope, use the Add-<Noun>Scope and Remove-<Noun>Scope cmdlets from the corresponding PowerShell snap-in.

To update the metadata associated with a scope, use the Set-AdminScopeMetadata and Remove-AdminScopeMetadata cmdlets.
