How To Restart WSUS Service Using PowerShell

This article will show you how to restart Windows WSUS service using PowerShell and the cmd tool.

I decided to create this article following the previous post which was created before this was available using PowerShell.

To check the service status type:

Get-service wsusservice

To start:

start-Service wsusservice

To stop use:

stop-Service wsusservice

To restart the service:

restart-Service wsusservice

To use the cmd tool use:

Net stop WSUSService

Net start WSUSService
