If you have HP Devices (and you should), you probably have used HPIA. HPIA is a tool that will scan your computer for updates and other recommendations and apply them (and it will do a lot more). This tool has extensive command line parameters, which I like. Check out the User Guide’s Command Line area.
I use HPIA in a lot of my solutions, even written a module for OSDCloud to update HP Devices. For now though, I’m using in in a Run Script… pushing the limits of the Run Script.
You can grab the Script on my GitHub: Run-HPIA.ps1
When you create it the Run Script, make sure you add LISTs for the Parameters, to make it easy to run exactly what you want, and not have user error.
I ran it on a machine I just re-imaged.. it took about 15 minutes.
There is a lot of information there, and if you want to see cleaner info, you can always look at the logs on the endpoint.
I also added the ability to have the device restart after you run HPIA, but I’m not going to demo that here.
