ArcGIS Enterprise - Does anyone fully script their upgrades?

Good morning. We are currently planning an upgrade of ArcGIS Enterprise (Portal, Server, Datastore, and Web Adapter) 10.6.1 to 10.9.1. It is all on a single standalone Windows Server VM.

I am wondering if anyone has successfully completed an upgrade to 10.9.1 using only the command line tools with silent install parameters. The last time I performed this upgrade, I needed to handhold the installers throughout each process . I'd love to not dedicate one of my weekend days watching Portal upgrade for almost two hours, followed by all of the other installers.

So, back to my main question, is it possible to script this upgrade? Or is it more of a pipe dream? Thanks.

Yes, this can be accomplished with Powershell DSC.  There is a GitHUB respository with sample configs to perform this.  For example, to upgrade to 10.9.1 on a single-machine, you would use the following JSON file:
