Patching via K1000 ineffective and slow
I am trying to set up patching for our newly imaged/scripted installations. As a test I created a machine label called "New Win 7 Machine", and manually added the label to a freshly scripted installation of Windows 7x64 SP1.
We do a complete detect every day at 3:00am, and all the active Microsoft patches show as downloaded to the K1000.
Under the Patch listing, I have created a smart label that sees all critical MS patches for Windows 7x64 SP1.
Under Detect and Deploy, I created a Detect and Deploy patch schedule to apply the critical MS Patches for Windows 7 x64 SP1, and pointed that to the machine with the "New Win 7 Machine label." I also created a label that lists all active Microsoft patches and set the Patch Schedule to apply those and got very similar results.
After running the patch schedule against the target machine for over two days, the results look like this:
|PPLDPIK-NG0G834||10.1.100.80||completed||Patched: 15, Not Patched: 215, Detect Failures: 15 , Deploy Failures: 0|
Looking at the report "For each Patch, what machines have it installed" the listing for this machine shows 44 patches have been applied. To check what still needs to be patched, I ran Windows Update, and it says there are still 116 important updates available.
What am I missing, to cause such poor results? I have searched ITNinja, but haven't seen any postings about similar issues.
If anyone can point me in the right direction, I would really appreciate it!
