Install-WindowsUpdate

SYNOPSIS

Downloads and installs updates via Windows Update

SYNTAX

Install-WindowsUpdate -getUpdatesFromMS -acceptEula -SuppressReboots
[-criteria <String>] <CommonParameters>

DESCRIPTION

This uses the windows update servise to search, download and install updates. By default, only critical updates are included and a reboot will be induced if required.

PARAMETER

GetUpdatesFromMS

If this switch is set, the default windows update server, if any, is bypassed and windows update requests go to the public Microsoft Windows update service.

AcceptEula

If any update requires a eula acceptance, setting this switch will accept the eula and allow the update to be installed.

SuppressReboots

Setting this switch will suppress a reboot in the event that any update requires one.

Criteria

The criteria used for searching updates. The default criteria is "BrowseOnly=0 and IsAssigned=1 and IsHidden=0 and IsInstalled=0 and Type='Software'" which is effectively just critical updates.
