Hi sslbell, by 'a pending reboot', do you mean 'a machine that has a 'PendingFileRenameOperations' value in the registry? If so, I wrote a command-line tool called 'needboot' that can check for this on the local machine. You could combine needboot.exe with PSExec and find out which machines need rebooting. You can get needboot.exe from my web site: http://www.westmesatech.com/. Bill.
