How to determine agent version for SCOM 2007 R2

I updated SCOM 2007 R2 to CU7. Without going to each server, I want to be able to view in SCOM what agents still need the CU7 update without having to bother our SQL admin all the time for reports.

I believe I can do this by creating a new view. Any help on how to create a view to show the agent patch list would be great.

Thanks!

Hi,
Did you check Monitoring > Operations Manager > Agent > Agents by Version ?

On my SCOM production server I have Monitoring - Operations Manager - Agent - Agents By Version and it does tell me what CU the agent has under the Patch List column.

On my DEV production server that I just built, there is no Agents By Version under Operations Manager - Agents. Do you know why this is? When I go to add a new view, it says that I don't have permissions.

Both servers are running SCOM 2007 R2. How would I get permission to create views? Is this set on the SQL server?

Too many email signature changes to deal with?

Are you constantly being asked to update your organization's email signatures? Do they take up too much of your time? Wouldn't you love to be able to manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users. Well, you can!

The local Administrators group was set under the Operations Manager Adminmistrators role. My account is a domain admin account and domain admins are listed under the local Administrators group.  Any other reason why I can not create new Views?

Thanks

Local admin is not enough, settings is under Administration -> Security -> User Roles from SCOM console.

Correct when I go under Security - User Roles, The Operations Manager Administrators role has local admins assigned to it.

The domain admin group is in the local administrators group. I am a domain admin so I should have full control of the console but I can not creat new Views.

I wasn't able to create or delete any views because my account did not have access to the database.
