Using powershell to run windows updates
Posted on 2011-04-29
I can not use WSUS, nor any other mechnisim. I have no access to Group Policy, and that can not be changed.
I am looking for a powershell script that will allow me to run windows updates (to Microsofts Servers) download and install all current patches.
Idealy I could run the file from my computer and it would go out to all the servers in my list and kick off Windows update.
All server builds are done a special network. I can not deploy WSUS or any other tool on this network so please DO NOT SUGGEST IT. To move it off this network I need to have them fully patched first. MY only option is Powershell.
If I can't figure out a way to do this with powershell I will have to continue to do it manually..
