I'd like to know if there is a way to setup options for automatic updates from cmd/powershell. It needs to be done for CAU to work properly. The settings are in GP and Windows Update settings:


There are some commands like wuauclt or wusa, but i'm not sure if either can do the job.
Thank you!

    @udara peiris Thanks. But it looks like this one is not official Microsoft module, but written by some private person- so this won't solve my issue. I guess there is no way to do it from cmd except you write own script or grab it from somewhere?
