Sorry in advance, if this is covered already on the site, but I did try to search...

We are moving from using another Patching appliance to using KACE for all of our patching (Because of the failure rate, and lack of patches available to deploy). Luckily all of our computers are running Windows 7 SP1, so there are only packages from 2011 to push out.

I subscribed to patch definitions from KACE, and these are pulled down every night. I collected a list of patches for Windows 7 SP1 and Office 2010, and I want to add them to a patch label, Windows 7 Patches & Office 2010 Patches.

My question is: Where are all of the patches? And how is everyone else deploying the missing patches? There have been 71 patches since SP1 for Windows 7 and Office 2010, but I can only find 60 of them. Does KACE subscribe to these patches?

For example: KB2553290, KB2553323, KB2553455

Any help is appreciated.
Thanks.

Hey baist111,

Welcome to the KBOX!

At the moment, the KBOX patch stream doesn't pull all Windows patches, it only pulls critical security patches. Additional patches can be requested, and a status report for those should be available. I tried to open the report, but the kace website couldn't find it (hopefully it returns soon).

baist111 the kbox pulls patches that are critical and important. In this case microsoft does not deem those three KB's worthy of security bulletins so we do not include them either.

Thanks for the replies, I'm starting to understand.

Is there a preferred method to install the non-critical updates, what is everyone else doing?

I run some scheduled update patches to a Windows 7 and a XP Pro PCs with Force Reboot in Reboot Options. The XP Pro PC patches fine and restarts itself. The Windows 7 PC patches fine but won't restart itself but have the pop up on the PC indicating that the PC will restart in 10 minutes but the user have to select Restart in order for the PC to restart. Is there a way to force Windows 7 PC to restart after windows update. Anyone run into this problem?

Thanks,

John,
