Configuring the system assessment scan interval

The system assessment scan lets you periodically inventory operating systems, applications, and installed patches on managed computers with the software update plug-in installed. System assessment information is then used to determine which software updates the managed computer requires. Based on this information, filters are automatically created to assist with the targeting of software update policies.

You can configure how often you want to run the system assessment scan.

To configure the system assessment scan interval

  1. In the Symantec Management Console, on the Settings menu, click All Settings.

  2. In the left pane, click Software > Patch Management > Windows System Assessment Scan.

  3. In the right pane, under Schedule, configure how often you want the software update plug-in to perform the system assessment scan on the managed computers and report it back to Notification Server.

  4. If you want to report inventory only if it has changed, check Send Inventory Results Only if Changed .

    This option is checked by default.

  5. Do not change the targeted filter from Windows Computers with Software Update Plug-in Installed Target unless you have a specific reason to do so.

  6. Click Save changes.
