Windows: Updates

Distribution Official part of Checkmk
License GPLv2
Supported Agents Windows
The check uses WMI to fetch the number of pending important and optional updates on a windows system. It also checks if a reboot is needed after installing updates.

By default the check only fetches the information and never raises WARNING/CRITICAL states. But this can be configured.

The windows agent needs to be extended with the windows_updates.vbs provided in agents/windows/plugins.


One service named {System Updates} is created for each host.
