PowerShell for WSUS

Jonathan Medd has just shared another cool PowerPack – this time providing a great set of scripts for Windows Server Update Services (WSUS).

His pack includes scripts to get information on almost every aspect of WSUS deployment: servers, configuration, email notifications, databases, target computers, updates, approvals, download progress and much more.

At the moment the PowerShell scripts in the pack are mostly just reporting the data, but it looks like Jonathan is adding stuff as we speak. He has just uploaded a newer version with the Start-Synchronisation action added – kicking off a manual Synchronization against Windows Update or the Upstream WSUS server.

Download the pack and keep an eye on the changes Jonathan is posting.

    Thanks for this, Dmitriy – I am, however, looking for a command-line WSUS reporter. Do you know of one? I am just looking for something that can look at my WSUS server and give me some sort of output of what machines have updates waiting that they have not yet installed.
