SCCM 2012 SP1 - Wsus/Updates for computers

Posted on 2014-01-03

Last Modified: 2014-01-04
In Configuration Manager console when I click on an update in Software Library > Software Updates > All Software Updates, it tells me the # of systems compliant/required/not-required/unknown.

How do I see which actual systems are needing the update or have it?
Because all I see are numbers and a pie chart but no actual data to me that makes sense, as in, letting me see the host names of computers that need this office patch, or that windows patch, etc..

Thanks so it's really just through reports? Nothing like a quick-view within the console?

Yes, basically you need to go through reports

You may try below articles but it requires complex sql query to build probably

Through SCCM console, within update list and in normal patch selection list it would give you info such as patch downloaded or not, approved or not, the no of machines patch required (not the hostnames), superseded status etc
You may check in but don't think it will help much
