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!

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

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?

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.
