MBSA 2.0 CLI
Posted on 2006-07-06
I have searched and cannot find a simple answer to this.
How can I use MBSA to give me a list of patches needed by a set of servers in a text file? I had seen some newgroup postings about parsing the xml output - but I think someone can recommend a good script to use or have a better solution (that is free).
I know how to automate scans to save the default results for a group of servers but I do not want to use the GUI to open each one.
cd "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer 2"
mbsacli.exe /listfile c:\support\mbsa\Systems.txt /n Password+IIS+OS+SQL /wi
That saves the results to C:\Documents and Settings\administrator\SecurityScans\
I am just trying to get a good list of patches needed so I cna approve them via WSUS. I know some patches override others and want to just approve patches that I need.
