ITMS - Patch Management Questions/Confusion - FRUSTRATION!!!!
Once a month during Patch Tuesday I go into our system and run a PMI Import. I do this typically on the Wednesday after Patch Tuesday. My settings for my PMI Import are as follows.
These items are checked!
-Automatically revise Software Update policies after importing patch data
-Enable Distribution of newly added Software Updates
-Disable all superseded Software Updates.
Problem 1 - After my PMI import completes and I go to Bulletins and Details none of the critical or important updates from the prior month show as being downloaded. In fact many that I know I downloaded are showing as downloaded = "no". What would cause this?
Problem 2 - After sorting by "Date Released" then using the scroll button on the right hand side to scroll down I loose my sort and I'm left looking at patches from 1999. I'm hoping this is fixed in 7.5
What would cause the download status of these bulletins and updates to display a download status of "no"?
If a software bulletin has a downloaded status of "no" will the policy become disabled?
