I have a network of XP machines doing lab-testing stuff. I also have another XP sitting at the side as a scheduler, starting and stopping jobs on the other machines. Lately I’ve come across a few issues with Windows Updates. Does anyone know of a way of checking remotely whether updates have been downloaded and are waiting to be installed. I’ve tried using tasklist /s but all I can see is that the update client is running, not whether it has actually got anything waiting or not. I can’t see any difference in services or processes running when comparing two machines with and without updates waiting. I don’t want to turn the updates off, but equally I want to be able to selectively restart a machine when the scheduler deems it appropriate and necessary to do so.
