auditing Messenger Service via Group Policy.

I am trying to see the status of the messenger service on systems across the network. Please help out.
I have SCCM 2007 and Operations Manager 2007 as well. Not sure if i can use these. Kindly suggest solutions or tools  and procedures I can use.
Thank you

Thanks
