Description

The Get-SilWindowsUpdate cmdlet displays a list of Windows updates installed on a computer that runs the Windows Server operating system. If you do not specify the ID parameter, the cmdlet displays all Windows Updates installed on the system. Software Inventory Logging collects the data at the point in time that you run the cmdlet.

Examples

Example 1: Display a list of Windows updates

PS C:\> Get-SilWindowsUpdate


ID             : KB280289
InstallDate    : 4/1/2013

This command displays a point in time list of Windows updates installed on the local computer.

Optional Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

-ThrottleLimit

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.
