Script to get WSUS server from Local Group Policy and Registry

Environment:  All Windows 7 x64 Enterprise
SCCM 2007 R2 & SUP for updates

Hi experts!!  (aka my favorite people!)

I have a computerlist.txt with about 200 computer names in it.  I would like a script that will check the value of the following two entries and then output it to a file:

In Registry:  HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate  : the Data value for WUServer.

In Local Group Policy:  Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Update\Specify Intranet Update Service Location  :  the value of option 'Set the intranet update service for detecting updates'

I would love both to be done, but if it's not possible to get the value from the Local Group Policy, I will be ok with just the registry key.

Thank you!!

Rob...  you continue to blow my mind, as always.  Every time I see your name on one of my questions I breath a little easier because I know you hit the nail on the head every single time!  I hope you really love what you do, because you're awesome!

The above vbs worked without a hitch.  No changes/modifications were needed.  Beautiful.  Thank you, this is helping me to verify an issue we've been having and now I can begin figuring out the cause/fix!

Perfect script.
Great.  Thanks for the grade.  I do love the things we can do with scripting, which is why I've been using it for more than 8 years now.  It can make life much easier!

Glad it worked for you.
