Windows SCCM patch level

I recently had SCCM implement.  I have found reports which let me see all Win 2008 R2 without patch, those with SP1 and those with SP2.  I wondered if there was a report within SCCM which would allow me to see at a more granular level the patching level of all my servers.  Which have received the latest patches less that a full blow SP and which have not.  ??  Thank you.

One other thing, you can initiate a software cycle inventory, or you can also initiate a software scan cycle to ensure the sytem is patched from the SCCM client side software or within SCC console on the system itself.

That sounds like Software Updates within SCCM.  You'll need to install a WSUS server tied to the SCCM instance.  It gives you a great deal of granularity, and it'll also enable a lot of the patch reporting within SCCM, but it takes a bit of effort to set up.
Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

I was looking into a custom WMI query to show all software on a system. You can use a custom query created as a WMI script to get more granularity on what's on a system.

But, there are also built in reports to see what computer has what software.

There's also (within SCCM) the ability to create dashboards.

All of this is a lot of playing around with the server to get it to do what you want. It's best to get a patching program that's built just for that reason of patching.

If interested in any of the above ideas, ask for additional information.

Thanks all.
Here is a WMI command to work with:
