Why don't you use widely used solution such as WSUS ..You may control things more efficiently with this and would get a good quality and hassle free reporting system

Thanks for your response but using the script in menionted in above link we can pull the pending patch information from local machine any other way we can pull the report of all the servers remotely. Like we can mention all the servers name in text & script can take this as input variable.

Try below code ,

[void][reflection.assembly]::LoadWithPartialName(“Microsoft.UpdateServices.Administration”)
$global:wsus = [Microsoft.UpdateServices.Administration.AdminProxy]::getUpdateServer(‘wsus ServerName Goes here’,$False,Port Number goes here of your WSUS)
$computerscope = New-Object Microsoft.UpdateServices.Administration.ComputerTargetScope
$updatescope = New-Object Microsoft.UpdateServices.Administration.UpdateScope
$s = Get-Content C:\Names.txt
$a = New-Object Microsoft.UpdateServices.Administration.ComputerTargetScope
$b = New-Object Microsoft.UpdateServices.Administration.UpdateScope
$c =  $wsus.getcomputertargets($a)
$id = @()
Foreach($Server in $s)
{
 $id += @($c | ? {$_.FulldomainName -like “$Server*”} | Select-Object -ExpandProperty ID)
}

$k = $wsus.GetSummariesPerComputerTarget($b,$a)
$k | Where-Object{$id -contains $_.ComputerTargetID} | ForEach {New-Object PSobject -Property @{
ComputerTarget = ($wsus.GetComputerTarget([guid]$_.ComputerTargetId)).FullDomainName
DownloadedCount = $_.DownloadedCount
FaliedCount = $_.FailedCount
}} | Export-Csv C:\PatchResult.csv -NoClobber -Force

Open in new window


Note -

$global:wsus = [Microsoft.UpdateServices.Administration.AdminProxy]::getUpdateServer(‘wsus ServerName Goes here’,$False,Port Number goes here of your WSUS)

If you are using the default WSUS Port 80 then please no need of putting the WSUS Port number

The code will show the pending/Failed pathes on the list of servers.

List of servers are stoed in C:\Names.txt file.

Let me know if anything else is required.

More on this in my blog - http://prashant1987.wordpress.com/2012/11/21/powershell-script-to-query-wsus-for-downloadedfalied-patches-on-list-of-servers/

Hope this helps.

Regards,
