So i have a powershell script that currently runs as a task on servers and it uses WUinstall to get updates from microsoft. However, we have a PCI zone that has servers with no internet access, Is there a way to download updates manually to create a repository i can store on the network somewhere?

I have used a free product called WSUS offline update for equipment in locked zones, but not sure if using it will violate your PCI compliance....

You will have to research if it is OK to use.

looks interesting, does it basically download to itself then manually push the updates out the specific servers?

You can make it pull updates for various current versions, and it can make a USB drive or dvd image you can then get into the PCi compliant subnet and run the updater... It is a manual process on the install side, but I have used it in our SCADA network for updates.

The other option would be to have a wsus slave server that was CAREFULLY firewalled off so it can ONLY talk to main WSUS server.
