See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade windows-admin-center -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)

Windows Admin Center is a new, locally-deployed, browser-based management tool set that lets you manage your Windows Servers with no Azure or cloud dependency. Windows Admin Center gives you full control over all aspects of your server infrastructure and is particularly useful for managing servers on private networks that are not connected to the Internet.

Windows Admin Center is the modern evolution of in-box management tools, like Server Manager and MMC. It complements System Center and Operations Management Suite - it's not a replacement.

Supported operating systems

You can install Windows Admin Center on the following Windows operating systems:
Version Installation Mode
Windows 10 (1709) Desktop mode
Windows Server, version 1709 Gateway mode
Windows Server 2016 Gateway mode

Package Specific

Package Parameters

The following package parameters can be set:

  • /Port: - determines what port to listen on. Defaults to 6516. (You may want to use 443 on Windows Server)
  • /Thumbprint: - Existing certificate thumbprint. If not specified, a self-signed certificate is generated (expires after 60 days)

To pass parameters, use --params "''" (e.g. choco install packageID [other options] --params="'/ITEM:value /ITEM2:value2 /FLAG_BOOLEAN'").
To have choco remember parameters on upgrade, be sure to set choco feature enable -n=useRememberedArgumentsForUpgrades.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
