In 32 bits servers is posible to check the following registry key to find if a server is pending to reboot after a previous installation:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Updates\UpdateExeVolatile

Is there any easy way to find out if a 64 bits (windows server 2003 or 2008 x64) is in a pending reboot state?

You may need to check for this under the 64-bit systems virtualized 32-bit registry. It's under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node.

Hi!

If you are using the 'Windows Server OS Server 2008' please use the powershell script to check for the same.
