SCCM 2012 client Patching

I am running a test environment of:
-- SCCM 2012 R2
-- WSUS
-- SQL 2012
-- Windows 7 clients

I created a search criteria of MS Patches, created a Patch package & a collection and set a time for deploying these patches @ 1am.

How can I check a few days later if the patches were deployed to my test Windows 7 client.  
I have no idea where to look.
thanks

Do you have the Reporting Services point installed?  Go to that server via your browser, and drill down thru [your Site]  >  Software Updates - C Deployment States > States 1 - Enforcement states for a deployment   -- and select the deployment you want to check on.

I think you're going through http(s)://<server>/Reportserver, which can also work.   Can you go through http(s)://<server>/reports  instead?   (That won't fix your problem... but it'll be much easier to navigate.  'Reportserver' is the interface applications use to consume reporting services.)

And the 'useful' report in this case is four below the selected one in your graphic.  ('*C Deployment States')

Unfortunately, from the error, I'm going to say that reporting isn't completely configured or working at this time.

Can you possibly sort out what you want from the raw logs?  Maybe.  But if you have multiple deployments, and each deployment is going to multiple targets... I suspect it's the hard way to go.

The report, when it opens properly, will look like this --
SCCM - *C Deployment StatusAnd you'll just select the Deployment... from there, it'll give you a summary of the deployments and you'll be able to select each status to determine which machines make up the count in that status.

I set up a deployment package and want to know if it got deployed.

I set it up for the 1am the following day.

I want to see if the user desktop got it.

Yes.  

The status of software update deployments (whether the clients downloaded them, currently are downloading them, installed but awaiting confirmation of installation, etc) are checked via Reports.  To get the information you want, you need to get your SCCM Reporting Services point functioning.

Alternate methods of getting the information would require installing third party add-ons.  This one, for example, directly interrogates the client machine, not SCCM.
