Hotfix installation time
OK, one of my (many) annoyances with PM is that it takes a while to update a machine once a new image is deployed.
But I got this from support.
Check the policy > Settings > Agents/Plug-ins > Software > Patch Management > Windows > Default Software Update Plug-in Policy.
If there is configured a 24h schedule window the appropriate clients should install the required software updates as soon as the "Altiris Software Update Agent" is installed. But please note it can take a little time (a few minutes) if the Altiris Software Update Agent" is up and running after the installation of the Symantec Management Agent.
Se essentially they are saying as soon as the PM agent is on that machine then the patches should be downloaded and isntalled withing a couple of minutes. Not my experience. Is this correct ?
