Hi Guys,

have a number of machines that are missing patches. I've looked at the report Machines not compliant by patch and it gives me a list of machine missing what patches but how do I translate that into a machine label that I can use? Is there way to hit only the machines that haven't gotten patched?

Thanks,

Mike

Why would you want to? The kbox will not deploy patches to machines that do not need it -- the machines that were patched will not redo the same patches. Are you trying to super streamline the patching process by adding redundancy into the detect process with labels?

Yes, I have over 3000 plus machines and I don't want to bother all of them in one night. I'm looking for a clean way of determining only the machines that need the patches. Plus if I did a detect on all the machines I think it would cause network/kbox performance issues.

You won't cause a performance issue because of built-in scheduling:
see http://itninja.com/question/recommended-number-of-machines-per-patch-schedule?&mpage=1&key=throughput&#86550

Only machines that need the patch would get it. The others would pass and move on. If you have already done a detect then consider just a deploy schedule.
