• I Michael. Thank you for your help.

    I Execute the install-Module PSWindowsUpdate with -Verbose option on both machine. So I suppose the module is installed and loaded. I have also execute Get-WUList command with -Verbose and the result so weird :

    It seems the command is lauched well but cannot have access to the availables updates. What do you think ?


  • I think the PSWindowsUpdate module is already installed :

  • Hello Michael.

    Here is the result of the “dir” command on both side :

    The result is the same.


  • Hello Michael.

    I have found a english translation of the error message :

    following error message : WinRM cannot complete the operation. Verify that

    Do you think the roots cause could be the NetConnectionProfile setting ?


  • Hello Powershell group members.

    I try to launch a windows 8 update by using powershell.

    But when I want to list the avaliable update by using Invoke-Command remoting command I have no result.

    And when I do the same on local virtual computer, I have a big list :

    My login is registered as an administrator on the Virtual Machine.

    Could you tell me whitch setting I have to activate if I want to have the Get-WUList result with Invoke-COmmand ?

    Best regards.

  • Hello, all of Powershell forum members.

    I meet a problem with “Invoke-Command” powershell command : I send exactly the same command on two Windows 8 Hyper-V Virtual Machines but the result is different.

    Here is a screenshot of the powershell command prompt :

    I follow the Michael Pietroforte recommendations on https://4sysops.com/wiki/enable-powershell-remoting/ on both VM.

    Could you give some suggestions to solve my problem ?

    Best regards.

  • Hello.

    I am using a Hyper-V server on a Windows 10 PC.

    This server as several VMs with following operating systems:

    – Windows 10 32 and 64 bit

    – Windows 7 32 and 64 bit

    – Windows 8.1 32 and 64 bit

    My objective is to automate the antivirus update. I manage to do this with Invoke-Command on Windows 10 VMs, but not in Windows 7.

    I have the following error :

    PS C:Windowssystem32> Invoke-Command -VMName "RDITS_win7_32_en" -Script {start "C:Program FilesMcAfeeVirusScan Enterprisemcupdate.exe"} -Credential (Get-Credential "EURSESA105951")
    Invoke-Command : L’ordinateur virtuel RDITS_win7_32_en ne présente pas l’état en cours d’exécution. Au caractère Ligne:1 : 1 + Invoke-Command -VMName "RDITS_win7_32_en" -Script {start "C:Program ... + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + CategoryInfo : InvalidArgument : (:) [Invoke-Command], ArgumentException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : InvalidVMState,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.InvokeCommandCommand

    The Powershell version on Windows 7 VM is 5.1. Could you tell me how execute a remote command on Windows 7 VM ?

    Thanks a lot and Best Regards.
