Start patching process directly
I have a quick question.
I just install an Altiris 7.1 test system to test the patch management solution. For the client communication I used SSL.
Now I create a test filter with 5 machines where I install the client. The communication between the client and the notification server looks well.
I download the patches and create 3 test policies and apply them to the filter. Some of the patches were installed after 2 days on the machines. (So in generally the process is working)
Now I add a new server, the patch management solution was installed and I try to start the patch management process directly. But I’m not able to do this. I request a configuration update, which worked fine, the maintenance windows is turned off and in the policy I configured to rollout ASAP.
Never the less nothing will be installed…. I wait over 2 hours and in total I have only these 5 machines, but no patches will installed…. WHY?
How can I trigger a rollout immediately? Why is it not starting directly when the server has nothing to do? Can someone explain me the process?
Thx BR Torsten
