Manage test and production groups in WSUS from powershell with PoshWSUS

I have always found the WSUS interface lacking in functionality for handling multiple server groups with test and production environments and here comes PoshWSUS in real handy.

I will show you basics on how to manage test and production groups and verify patch assignment.

You can find the PoshWSUS module here

Loading the module and connecting to your WSUS server

Select the group for your test environment that already got the latest patches assigned and deployed where patch functionality is verified

Get all the patches from your test environment and assign them to your production group

When the script is done running you will have an output list on all the assigned patches to the production group.

Lets verify that the production environment has the same patches applied as the test environment and list missing patches if found

If no patches are returned then your test environment now match your production environment of assigned patches
