Patch Stat Reset
Create a reset stats button that will recalculate all patch stats on the main Patch screen and the Patch List Screen. These stats occasionally get out of synch with the actual machines that need to be patched or that have failed to patch.

If you want to do this the fairly quick and dirty way, use this URL (making sure to sub your kbox url of course):
Just change the year and the length to show how many patches you want to view and what year the patch was issued on. From there you can select all and use the Actions menu to reset the tries.
Resetting the tries on 3000 entries takes about 10 minutes, but it is way faster than going from machine to machine, or attempting to do so 1000 entries at a time page by page through the GUI.
You can do a higher amount, but be prepared to wait around while it performs the reset. 3000 seems to be the happy medium that I have found.
That being said, I would still love a global "reset tries" button.
We are at 7.2 now. This still hasn't be implemented. Any update?

I'm on 6.4, and i still do not see this option. Is there at least an SQL option someone is aware of that can be executed?
