Patching by Orchestrator Part -2

In this blog i will share with you script and other resources that you can use to automate patching.

Restart-Computer -ComputerName REMOTE_COMPUTER_NAME -Force – Wait WinRM

This will force server to restart and return a success code only after the server restarts and WinRM service is up and running. This will ensure that the steps that you have arranged to be executed after a server reboot happens correctly and they do not get failed.

Like i said i in my earlier Patching by Orchestrator Part -1 Blog that i am unable to share complete runbooks or scripts that i have used due to NDA with my employer.

If you know of more script or other innovative ways of automating patching then please post them in comments section.

Note: Credit and risk for all the script and links that i have mentioned here goes to their respective authors.
