Patch a Nano Server WIM file

Q. How can I patch the Nano Server WIM with the latest cumulative update?

A. It is possible to apply cumulative updates to the Nano Server WIM so that any Nano Server instances created from the WIM already have the latest updates applied. It is a very simple command to install a CU to a WIM:

Import-module D:\NanoBuild\NanoServerImageGenerator.psm1
Edit-NanoServerImage -ServicingPackagePath 'D:\NanoBuild\Updates\' `
-TargetPath "S:\OS Images\Windows Server 2016 RTM\Expanded\NanoServer\NanoServer.wim"
