Hi, I have a successful failed check and run automated task setup for Windows Defender updates. However, the loop doesnt close when the automated task runs successfully. So I am left with an open alert and ticket. The suggestion is to run the associated DSC check(s) again manually. For full automation it would be good to have the associated DSC check run again, say 2 or 3 times max (to prevent an infinite loop on continuous ...more »
Updating firmware/BIOS/drivers. Wondering if there is a way of automating this process through the RMM rather than going to the manufacturer website? At least for the major manufacturers? Thoughts?
Currently its not possible to apply a monitoring template to offline devices. This makes more work for a sysadmin. Support chat says, the device needs to be online. Me request is that each time we edit a template. its gets a verison number automaticly, and if the device comes online it needs to check which version it has. When the new template with a higher version number is detected. It should apply the new template. ...more »
The ability to run a task on a check failure is essential to automating resolutions to common problems. Since we are having to manage the VulnScan regularly, it would be advantageous to be able to run some "quick Fixes" to see if those can solve the issues prior to our involvement. Several people have come up with (mostly) automated ways of dealing with some of the vuln scan issues. But it still takes time to kick ...more »
Add Automated Task to all Devices
Via the File Menue we have the Option to add Checks to ALL devices.
Can we recieve the same menue for automated Tasks?
It would be great to be able to choose the number or hours or minutes between when a task is run. Right now, you have the ability to choose days only, so there is no way to run the task multiple times automatically on the same day.
As it turns out, if you have configured an automated task to run each time a check fails, it only runs the first time the check fails and not on any consecutive failures. That is, it runs once per outage and won't run again until the check passes and then fails again. Sometimes that's fine. In other cases I really want the task to run each and every time the check comes back as failed. For example, I have an event log ...more »
We are patching client systems with Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. Our customers don’t want an automatic reboot after patching. Normally they shut down their clients after work. As with Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 the computers not really shut down anymore, but a reboot after patching is required, the reboot is outstanding until the users get informed about the required reboot. I think it would be nice to have a trigger for ...more »
Allow scheduled shutdown as well as reboot from the dashboard. This would help when companies have workmen coming in before our support hours that require the power to be turned off.
Thanks to the awesome guys at MAX support, we've been playing with some new features, specifically the tasks and all the new things you can now perform on machines. The thing I've learned very quickly is that you need the option to run multiple tasks or order multiple tasks. Currently you have to click a task, right click, choose Run Task, wait for confirmation popup, press OK, click the next task... etc. I'm adding ...more »
--EDIT-- My original question is void as the server being rebooted if through MAX RM will go into maintenance mode. Therefore I'm changing my idea to, 'If a host were to be rebooted through the reboot or patch management options then can it automatically put on VM's on that host & MAX RM into maintenance mode too'. This would apply to hyper-v environments. It might be that this just isn't possible but a nice little ...more »
The ability to manually run a task at a client/site level is great. What is missing is the ability to schedule it. Either add a "Run Later" command in the task menu or allow a "now / run at" radio button type thing in the dialog that comes up when you try to run a task at a client/site. That way we can schedule scripts, defrags, etc to run off hours manually across the client/site. This shouldn't affect any schedule ...more »
