We are using Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS) & Inventory Tool for Microsoft Updates (ITMU) for the distribution of Microsoft Security Patches. We use the following command for installation: PatchInstall.exe /g:0 /d /n /z:ws /c:15 /t:30 /m:"PatchAuthorize.xml"
After installation of a particular patch set, the balloon indicates a restart is required however, there does not appear to be any PendingFileRename associated with it.
In a custom utility, we are trying to determine if a restart is required after installing patches.
Since it appears this information is stored somewhere other than the PendingFileRename key, does anyone know where this information is stored? Is there another way to do this?
