Windows updates using chef


#1

Hi,

I know there is a wsus cookbook outthere, but how can I go about installing windows updates on say windows 7 with chef solo?
Any help appreciated.
Kind regards
Sean.

Hi Sean,
I wrote a powershell script that interacts with the windows update api a while ago and was thinking of dropping it in a recipe. Searching you will see examples of it everywhere as others did the same. I could post the PS script if you need it.
Thanks
