Request an overview of installed Microsoft Hotfixes using Powershell

One of my customers requested a overall view of the servers where one or more Microsoft Hotfixes were installed. I’ve used a small and simpel PowerShell script to do that.

This scripts uses a text file (serverlist.txt) to check which servers it needs to use to look for the Hotfix(es). Place each server ona  different line. I have placed the text file on d:\ServerLixt.txt. Use it like this:

server1
server2
server3
..etc

GetHotfix.ps1 generates a overview of installed hotfixes (in this case KB2486635) on the requested servers.

Looking up multiple hotfixes is possibile to extend the script with multiple ‘KB12345678’. For more information about the Get-Hotfix command: slook here.
