Smart Label Reporting for Missing Patches
We patch our Servers in Groups of 10 or 20 for easier maintenance and testing. However, we do not automatically deploy these patches to the servers as we want to review each patch and verify that it will not impact any configurations. Right now, once the scheduled patch detection has completed, we have to go through each individual server from the inventory to see what patches are available or run a massive report. This is very time consuming and not very user friendly. I would like to see if there was a way, once the patch detection has completed, an admin could either run a report or view the patch status of every computer in that Label to see what is available. Consolidation is key on this one. Then we can manually schedule a one time deployment to this labeled group with ease knowing which patches every computer/server will get.
This is essential for meeting regulatory compliance for our desktops and servers. Currently, Kace does a very poor job for patch management, if its not sorted soon we will be changing to another platform.
