This issue has been solved. See solution.

Ok so everything has been working fine for a long time.. but we had to rebuild our server.. and this went good today... 

I am fully back up and running except for one thing.


Windows Assessment Scan is missing.

I verified the machines are targeted in 
Windows Patch Remediation Settings
Windows Assessment Scan

but it isnt listed... is there a scheduled task that needs to be ran?

ok so I figured as much and confirmed.. sometimes it just takes time..

The nightly task needs to run for patch and it will then be available on the machines... so im good.. all up and running on a new server

Hello TeleFragger,

It looks like your issue has resolved after PM import task was executed. Some files are downloaded with PM import task and these files are required for Windows System Assessment scan. After your server was rebuilt, most probably, these files were missing till next PM import task.
