Failed Windows Update report.

Can I generate a report with PDQ Inventory to Report on servers that have failed windows updates? Something similar to this:

Computer Name: Failed Patch Name: Date Attempted:

I did some research, and came up with this:

  1. Create a WMI Scanner with this WQL:

SELECT Message, ProductName, TimeGenerated FROM Win32_ReliabilityRecords WHERE SourceName = 'Microsoft-Windows-WindowsUpdateClient' AND Message LIKE '%failure%'

enter image description here

  1. Create a Basic Report with these Columns:

    Computer | Name | Computer Name WMI (Failed Updates) | ProductName | Failed Patch Name WMI (Failed Updates) | TimeGenerated | Date Attempted

Add the Message column if you'd like to see the full error message.

Add this filter if you want to narrow down the results to the last X days:

WMI (Failed Upates) | TimeGenerated | After | 7 days ago

Here is my Scan Profile and Basic Report, if you want to import them instead: https://gist.github.com/Colby-PDQ/48b172b1a2afb12368ac212dad641870
