How do I update the PowerShell V3 Help files for Servers that are not Connected to the Internet?

With the updateable help files in PowerShell V3, this can be a challenge.  Many servers are not made to be on the internet.  For one reason or another, they are isolated.  This is common practice in highly secured networks.  So the question still remains.  How do I update the PowerShell V3 help files?  We use the Save-Help cmdlet.

 

Save-Help will allow you to save the update files on media and then manually install them in PowerShell.

Save-Help –DestinationPath Destination

In this case, Destination is where you want to save the file to.

To install the help file, go to the server and type:

Update-Help –SourcePath Source

In this case, Source is where the update file is located at.
