So, you deploy a GPO to Window 10 clients, but your in a hurry to get the clients to check in…
As a SysAdmin for many years I would log on to a client, open command prompt and type :
wuauclt /detectnow (Windows 7 / Windows Server 2008/2012 clients)
In Windows 10 you will notice that it doesn’t do anything and doesn’t show you anything. (As shown above)
An example of “Whats New” in Windows 10, and Windows Server 2016 To check or scan “Windows Update” from the command prompt :
CMD (Run As Administrator)
And there is more switches….
