Hi All,

Is there a tool that would present the status of devices, i.e. patches needed/missing or any other issues?  Maybe even if it could work off a visio network diagram?

Thanks

All depends how much info you want and budget.
A good free tool is spiceworks.  Once you get to grips with it you can do all sorts of things

Ok, thanks; looks like it checks for this information - i.e. patches, etc.  Do you know if this works for all equipment?

It works really well for pc, laptop, servers, printers and it also works for a lot of network equipment too, routers, switches, rtf  Does most if not all of what a lot of paid products offer, the reason they offer things for free is because they are supported directly by a lot of vendors.
