Reset Patch Tries on all computers/patches?
Is there a way to reset all patch tries on all computers / patches?
I have several patches (Adobe Reader 10.1.3 for instance) that have failed on several computers and would like to avoid having to reset each machine.

Here's a write-up I did on this from a larger post.

Resetting patch retries
One typical situation to be aware of is needing to reset patch retries, as after 3 failed attempts (or whatever the retry count is set at) the K1000 will not try to deploy a patch to the same machine again. Unfortunately there is currently no global "reset all patches for all machines option" (I've requested one - http://kace.uservoice.com/forums/82699-k1000/suggestions/2224904-global-reset-patch-tries-for-all-computers), but there are two ways currently of resetting patch retries:
1) Reset patch retries for all patches for 1 machine:
Inventory - Computers - click on target machine - click on Patching Detect/Deploy Status (under Security) - click the Reset Patch Tries button
2) Reset patch retries for all machines for 1 patch (confirmed by Kace support):
Security - Patching - Patch Listing - click on target patch - click the Save button
