Powershell 3 how to manage help files

Have you notice that when you’re running get-help cmdlet with power shell 3, very first time its asking you to update the help files from internet.But if youre having 20 servers, do we need to download help files for 20 servers?.No we can download the help files from internet and keep those in a file share.after that we can update all other servers from this source.



first we need to download the help using save-help command

Save-help –destinationpath \\localhost\help


These are the help files which we have downloaded from internet



Now we can update the help using update-help –sourcepath \\localhost\help
