I know at some point, probably all of 7.x, the Inv_AeX_OS_Quick_Fix_Engineering is gone. I need to generate a patch installation date report so I need to know the best way to do this in 7.6. Some notes I read made it look like that table may be back in 8.x, so what do I do in 7.x? I've tried to use ITA cubes, custom reports, and software execution dates. I purge the software exectution so ...

Even when we upgrade from 7.5, these same subagents ...

ITMS is a multi-platform support product.  When a technician needs to connect to a resource for a Windows client when the agent is not responding, one can use RTSM to conect to the client via WMI through RSTM.
