VBS Script needed to check amount of windows updates needed on remote servers

Hello eveyone,

I was wondering if someone knew of a script that I could use that would show me the amount of "critical" or "important" (no recommended basically) updates that a remote server needs. I would like to run a script from my machine, that would query any server or computer we have and send me a text file indicating something like " XZXServer needs 15 updates". If it could show the updates too , that would be awesome, but is not necessary..the count is the most important thing..this would help me eliminate the need to log onto 50 servers to see if updates were installed or not.
Servers are a mix of 2003,2008 64 and 32 bit..some R2, some not.

Thanks!

If you have WSUS installed, you can check in the SUSDB.

You can SELECT the 'summarizationstate' field with value = 3 or 6
