Check_sophos.vbs checks that the current virus definition date for Sophos Antivirus is within acceptable bounds.
When SNMP is not an option this is pretty useful.

Great script for checking windows machines with sophos. Although the enterprise console does this, it's useful for monitoring individual important servers. This also is useful because it is written in vbs and can be applied to 2003 machines as well as 2008!

How are you calling the check and what OS are you running this on? I have this script running with no issues on several Windows Server 2003 and 2008 R2 instances.
