Good afternoon,

              I am in the process of pacthing windows servers in my enviornment. However, once the patch is pushed I am looking for the most comprehensive way to create a report including the status of the push with server info included. Is that possible? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi sbroome,

Probably 'Policy execution by computer' report may be useful for you :
1. Navigate to Reports > Software > Patch Management > Remediation Status > 'Windows Software Update Delivery - Details' report
This report shows status (installed/not installed) for each applicable update delivered to clients
2. Right click on any update from 'Windows Software Update Delivery - Details' report and select 'View Complete installations' or 'View Incomplete installations' - 'Policy execution by computer' report will be opened.
If you are using 7.1.SP2, please be aware that this report shows installation activity for the last 24 hours.

I usually find these in Reports > All Reports, then expand Software > Patch Management > Compliance.
