Patch Status Report

Created: 20 Apr 2011 | 2 comments

We are currently running NS 7.0. We are looking for a report that will give us an overall patch deployment summary of each scheduled push.  We push patches out to groups of clients in different phases, since most of the reports only list overall compliance we would like a report that scopes down to the group of clients we push updates to.

The report should list the following.

Overall Compliance % for that push.

Number of Clients in the push.

Number of updates pushed.

Number of updates installed.

Number of updates failed to install.

Number of clients requiring reboot.

Number of outstanding vulnerabilities.

Has anyone created a similar report? Any help would be appreciated.

Do you have IT Analytics configured?  This would make this easier to obtain.  The problem is that the existing reports for this kind of data come from stored procedures which should not be modified.  Ideally 7.1 with IT Analytics would be the way to go, especially with the improvements coming in SP1.  But it should be possible in 7.0 with ITA as well.

We have ITA installed and configured. I just havent had time to play with creating any custom reports in ITA.  We were looking for some ITA report builder documentation but have been unable to find any.
