Dear N-central team, It's now become a requirement for ourselves and a set of customers, who are going through Cyber Essentials Security Certification, that all patches are installed within two weeks of their release date. In the Patch Profile you can check the box 'Force Missed Patch Installation on Boot' but there are various issues / limitations around this: -Although it says the machine will just install the missing ...more »
The Synology NAS systems have a variety of apps available for use and some of them have desktop components. It would be nice if the patch management component of RMM had the ability to patch Synology software, such as their Drive Client (formerly Cloud Station Drive).
please setup Patch Status v2 to give us an indication of when a patch became available to a machine
let this indication show up in the service details portion of notificaions
I would hope that if a patch was released 3 years ago but wasn't available to a machine until yetserday that it would count yesterday as the approval date, but this would give us another way to verify that.
It seems that 3rd party patches by defualt are downloaded even when 3rd party patching is not enabled.
When there is an agent running there are 3rd party patches downloaded in C:\Program Files (x86)\N-able Technologies\PatchManagement\ThirdPartyPatch
Would like to have them only available when the option is active
My company uses the Solarwinds RMM agent on many thin clients and since thin clients do not need to be kept up to date with the latest security patches we would love to see the ability to completely turn off vulnerability scans without uninstalling patch management.
I have found (especially with Windows 10/Windows Server 2016 server devices), that the following patches will be downloaded into the Agent Patch Cache (C:\Program Files (x86)\N-able Technologies\Patch Management\archive\): - Patches that have been set to "Approved for Install" which are not yet installed, and are superseded by other another patch that is also in the list of "Approved for Install" and "Not Installed" list. ...more »
I have noticed that when a patch is set to "Approved for Install", the target device agent will download the patches even if that means it will use up almost all space on the C drive. i.e. a Device has 5 GB of patches to download and only has 5.5 GB free space on the C drive. The Agent will download all the patches leaving only 500 MB of space on the C drive. This could cause issues with services running on that device. ...more »
The N-Central mobile app showed which updates were missing on computers before the update to the latest App. Please bring back that feature
Patch Management / Languard should show Date Installed, even if not installed by Languard. Many of the patches have the information available, e.g. when querying Windows Update. It is nice to know if Languard installed a patch, or not, so perhaps add another column to South Pane for that indication.
When preparing a new PC for delivery, there are often a number of patches to be installed.
Some reboots that require time.
Want an option to patch, reboot, patch until all patches are installed and PC is ready for delivery, except human intervention.
Hello, Some of our partners use the site concentrator. It's useful, but not really handy: - we don't know what is is actually doing, and what it is going to do later during the day (as we speak, debug.log and DryDockService.log are not usable to know what is happening) - we can't manage how it downloads files and updates So, if possible, we would like to see a web UI similar to the one we have when using Backup & Recovery ...more »
