WSUS v6 (Server2012) Automated patching RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good afternoon Professionals,

       I have been tasked with finding a way to automate our patching process using the builtin WSUS tools in Server 2012R2. I did some searching to see if someone had done this before and could not find anything for server 2012R2. I did find a script...https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/47de741b-b64a-4d8a-8bc1-53e6bf7f7792# but it only works for WSUS v3. (server 2008R2) and I was not able to get it to work in server 2012R2. I tried contacting the author of the script but no luck there either. I'm hoping someone out there could help me to make the script work in my environment using the builtin tools found in server 2012R2. Any assistance on this would be a tremendous help.

  • you mean automating the approval of patches?

    just use the auto approve rules and automatic synchronization schedule and you will not have to intervene

    2012 R2 has a ton of PowerShell cmdlets for WSUS so that's what you have to look at if you want to script it
