Installing SCOM UR

Below you can find simple example for installing patch 2012 R2 UR14:

UR Patch
UR Patch

In my case patch with .msp extension was located on d: drive:

$URPatch = "d:\SCOM\SCOM 2012 R2 UR14\*.msp"
$PatchName = (Get-ChildItem $URPatch).Name

First script will create folder d:\temp on remote server and then copy patch file using Start-BitsTransfer command. Next it will start msiexec process with parameters to install UR.

Final script:

$Servers = Get-Content "c:\users\$env:username\desktop\servers.txt"
$URPatch = "d:\SCOM\SCOM 2012 R2 UR14\*.msp"
$PatchName = (Get-ChildItem $URPatch).Name

foreach ( $Srv in $Servers ) {
   #Creating folder on remote machine
   icm -cn $Srv { $fl = Test-Path "d:\temp"; if ( -not $fl) { New-Item "d:\temp" -type directory } }
   #Copying files to remote server	
   Start-BitsTransfer -Source $URPatch -Destination "\\$Srv\D$\temp\"
   #Installing SCOM agent Patch
   icm -cn $Srv {param($PatchName) Start-Process -Wait "c:\windows\System32\msiexec.exe"  -ArgumentList @("/p","d:\temp\$PatchName /qn", "ADVANCED_OPTIONS=1","CHANNEL=100" ) -PassThru } -ArgumentList $PatchName
