When I run the "audit patches" script against remote servers. In the "notes" column I am get back the result of "offline". I know these remote are powered on.

I run a Test-Connection prior to attempting any sort of action against a server. This was done to speed of the process, especially when a WMI call or remote DCOM call was used as this can slow things down as it waits to timeout. I am looking at removing this and using something such as a port check to port 135 to verify that a server is online.
