I cannot get any report to give me the information in the a format like this:
Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition SP4
All the reports I tried either give me cryptic information or sort of the correct information for some servers and nothing for others. I read that I can create a script using WMI to pull the information from servers but I don't know how to do that in APM. I just get status up/down/critical, etc., how to I get actual values? I get up reponse when it succesfully finds the information I suppose.
SELECT Version FROM Win32_OperatingSystem
For example, give me an Up status in APM. I want the actual response instead.
Is there a better method to pull this information from the Windows (VM or real) servers?
Any help is appreciated.
We use Patch Manager to get that type of information. The tricky part is maintaining that database is a little bit of work. Usually, the reports are very configurable and do allow creating a report like you suggested.
