Force VM that’s been offline to check WSUS for updates

Periodically, I have a base image that needs to be updated.  It is usually not in a running state so it falls behind in Microsoft patches.  After waking the VM from storage, I use the following to force a check to the defined Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) with the following command from the command line:

wuauclt /detectnow
