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.
This is not really a feature request but more of a bug! However, Solarwinds MSP Support suggest that I add this bug into here. There is an issue where if a patch has been identified by N-able Patch Management as Needed / Not Installed, and then someone manually installs this patch on the device itself, then the Patch Management system will not detect this and the patch will remain as Needed / Not Installed. What SHOULD ...more »
Over the Christmas period and other holidays my company occasionally requests a patch freeze - to prevent issues occurring when we have minimal staff in. An option to halt patching with one switch - or to be set via a paused time frame across all the customers we support would be ideal as currently I would have to go through and adjust each individual one.
I have noticed that if you approve a patch for install. Then the device discovers that this patch has been superseded, the original patch is removed from any patch reports and in the Patch Management, and it still gets installed. There is no way to track what has been installed when it has been superseded. So a step by step scenario would be: 1. Patch is detected i.e. Patch1 2. Set Approval to 'Approve for Install' ...more »
it would be extremely handy to be able to, at the very least, export the selected customers from the rules grant customer/site access tab, at the very most, have a report that will show me the associations between customers and rules, allowing me to pick which customers, or which rules I want to run the report against. In particular I need this for all of my patch management rules as we currently have to audit patch ...more »
When I re-apply a patch approval rule, I need to be able to tell when it is done applying and what all was changed - if anything.
Associated with ticket # 00897232.
We have a patch policy for each day of the week that is applied to various customers. Say for example on a Monday we have 15 Customer sites that all patch over night on the "Monday Night Patch Policy". I want a report that is ran automatically at the end of the maintenance window that lists all of the devices that should have been patched, whether they patched on or not and which patches have installed or failed. This ...more »
Add the functionality to recognize whether a device is set to defer updates and accept patches adhering to the requirements accordingly.
This should prevent buggy OS patches affecting software without an update which fixes it already existing.
With Lastpass so commonplace today, we need to add this to the list of 3rd party patching if possible.
There should be an option to block PatchManagement from downloading patches when using mobile connections like 3G or 4G. Blocking PatchManagement for metered connections would be nice.
If there would be an option to define which networkadapter has to be used during Patching via Patchmanagement
And on top of that a Timeframe for Patching - not only "14:00" but rather "18-22" Never on another time, and asap if within that timeframe
Then we could monitor Devices of "out of office" Workers (consultants etc.) correctly and deliver patchmanagement for these customers too.
When approving patches, the patch status of all machines patches is shown. Many times (at least in my case) clients may have 'stale' machines i.e. machine that for whatever reason have not been online for days, weeks, or months (vacation, sabbatical, broken, spare, disaster recovery, etc). I do not want to delete these machine as they may come back online with out notice and would come up with no AV protection (and ...more »
