At work we have hundreds if servers.

Every night we select 50 or so to patch manually running windiws update

So we run a scan and DO not installed the following:

Exchanges patches
share point patches
windows malicious remover

Everything else we install. But this takes too long. I need a script which logs into each server , does the updates And reboots the server. Even if it logs in And allows ME to choose what to install will be good enough. Currently I'm sitting for hours logging I to each sever individually and running Remote Desktop manager. Then scanning , selecting updates, installing rebooting, running the scan again etcetc etcetc then I have to manuly update a spreadsheet with update which have failed to install etcetc etcetc long process

Is there a script that does what I want somewhere on the Internet? If not can somebody provide a good source or direction in this can be achieved ?

Did you ever consider to use Windows Server Update Services? You can group your servers, and apply specific updates only to them, all managed from a single server. It also monitors installed / denied / failed updates.
