First off, I am using Don's PowerShell 3 2nd edition. At chapter 3. I have two machines that are not internet connected. Thought this would be easy. šŸ™ I am running everything in Administrator and using ISE x64.

I used this command on a connected computer that has a share (Everyone – Read, Modify)
This command worked fine from what I saw with no errors.
Save-Help ā€“Force ā€“DestinationPath \\CL-WIN830CC\PowerShellHelp

Went to the non-connected machine and mapped a drive to the share.
I used this command next
update-Help ā€“Force ā€“sourcePath \\CL-WIN830CC\PowerShellHelp
Fails after some files copying with a specific error. I also tried a few different parameters but still same error. Please see attachment. I ended up just connecting one machine to the internet and did the basic update-help and the machine is updated but I have more non-connected machines. Any help would be great!
Thanks

Well I can see I am going to have user issues posting images.
Here is the text of the error.

PS C:\Users\Administrator> update-help -force -sourcepath \\cl-win830cc\powershellhelp

XML file for UI culture en-US. Make sure the HelpInfoUri property in the module manifest is valid or check your network connection
and then try the command again.

We have the same issue and would hope someone can point us to a downloadable file we can then bring across to our offline server to then Update our PS4 help.
