Is there a network based tool which I can run on my network which will advise on IOS versions and upgrade paths. I know of the software advisor tool on the web site but I am looking for a way to automate it and generate a report for many devices.

    SDM and ASDM include a security audit tool. That's the closest thing I can think of.
