Powershell CmdLet not found in Azure Automation Runbook

Update modules in Azure automation account, this is a reminder (to self) that every time you create a Azure automation account it needs to be updated. Note : “Before updating your Azure modules it’s recommended that you update them in a test Automation Account to ensure that your existing scripts work as expected before updating your Azure modules.”

Update management, inventory, and change tracking in Azure Automation

 It is now possible in Azure Automation to use update management, inventory, and change tracking directly from the Azure VM. One of the cool things I found was the ability to create scheduled deployment of windows updates within a defined maintenance windows. You can see the status of update deployment directly on the VM, just like you can in OMS. Nice work Azure Team. All this is still in Preview, but I suspect it will go GA soon. 🙂
 
 For more about the new Update management, inventory, and change tracking in Azure Automation see this blog post from the Azure team, and the Microsoft doc on how to set this up.
