Query windows update settings using powershell RRS feed

  • Question

  • Would like to find out how to run the "Invoke" command to query "Windows update status" on the remote machine running Windows Server 2016, 2008, 2012

    Currently using the following and am getting results on local machine although the script does not work when used remotely with the Invoke command

    Invoke-Command -ComputerName testpc1
    $WindowsUpdates = New-Object -ComObject "Microsoft.Update.AutoUpdate"

    Any help is kindly appreciated, thanks
