Windows Server restart status using powershell
I've got several hundreds of Windows Server 2003 and 2008 virtual machine + several physical machine which is updated by WSUS automatically but it needs to be restarted manually.
Is there any way to know which server needs restart and which one is not ?( eg using powershell)

Yes - but you need to take control of the download/install process.
Start with Windows Update Agent API (Windows) - this gives an overview of what's possible and then look at the code on slides 44/45 of this presentation - http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...%20(WSUS).pptx
The code will force a reboot if needed but you could easily change it so that it sends an email, writes a log or whatever when a server needs a restart.
