Windows Server 2019 updates with CIM

Windows Server 2019 updates with CIM remain the same as all server versions post Windows Server 2016. This code will check for and install any updates. Micorosft Update or WSUS will be used depending on how your system is configured

$au = Invoke-CimMethod -Namespace root/microsoft/windows/windowsupdate  -ClassName MSFT_WUOperations -MethodName  ScanForUpdates -Arguments @{SearchCriteria=”IsInstalled=0″}
$au.Updates

if ($au.Updates.Length -gt 0) {
   Invoke-CimMethod -Namespace root/microsoft/windows/windowsupdate  -ClassName MSFT_WUOperations -MethodName  InstallUpdates -Arguments @{Updates = $au.Updates}
}
else {
   Write-Warning “No updates available”
}

This code should work on Server 1709, 1803, 1809 and Windows Server 2019.

It won’t work on Windows Server 2016 as the CIM classes were changed post Windows Server 2016
