    • I am getting the below error:
      WARNING: Fqdn<80>: Exception calling "GetUpdateServer" with "3" argument(s): "The request failed with HTTP status 404: Not Found."
      I am running the script in an elevated power shell session on the same WSUS server.
      How to solve this?

    • It sounds like there might be a permissions issue with the account that you are using to run the script.
    • ensure when testing the script you're running it from an admin powershell window
  • How to send to multiple email recipients?
    3 Posts | Last post July 21, 2017
    • Hi, thanks for making this script! Works fine on Server 2016 with WSUS, but I just can't get it to send the email to multiple recipients. It does successfully send if I just put one email address in.
      I've tried ',' as well as replacing the comma with a semi colon ";" and using different spacing. Can't seem to get it worked out. Is it possible with this script? What's the correct syntax if so?
    • Open the powershell script and Set the below line to $TRUE
      #Send email of report
      [bool]$SendEmail = $FALSE
    • I completely rewrote the email portion as I also could not get CC or additional recipients to work. This is what I wrote:
      $smtp=new-object System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient
      $mailMessage = new-object System.Net.Mail.MailMessage
      $ ="" 
      $sender = new-object System.Net.Mail.MailAddress(', "WSUS Automated Report")
      $recipient = new-object System.Net.Mail.MailAddress("")
      $mailMessage.IsBodyHTML = $true
      $mailMessage.Subject="WSUS Report"
      $mailMessage.Body = $Report
      $mailMessage.Sender = '
      $mailMessage.From = $sender

    • The term 'Get-CIMInstance' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check
       the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.
      At WSUSReport.ps1:298 char:28
      +     $Data = Get-CIMInstance <<<<  -ComputerName $WSUSServer -ClassName Win32_LogicalDisk -Filter "DeviceID='$drive'"
          + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (Get-CIMInstance:String) [], CommandNotFoundException
          + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException
    • This was built to run using at least PowerShell V3. If you want to run this in PowerShell V2, you will need to rename Get-CIMInstance to Get-WMIObject and then do a Find and Replace on '[pscustomobject]' and 'New Object PSObject -Property '.
    • Thanks it worked.
    • It should be 'New-Object PSObject -Property ', not 'New Object PSObject -Property '.
