When do patches actually start downloading? I have a schedule setup and I see the "Notifty" step, but are the patches downloaded during the "Notify" step and during detection, or after that point?

From my understanding and use I've noticed the patches don't download until after the notify step. So once the person click OK to install the patches, that's when they start to download to the pc IF they are available on the KACE appliance. If not you will see the status of "downloading" and you will need to run a subscription update. Thus far you cannot pre download patches on a PC and choose to install them at a later time.

  • Thanks for the info! We have some *really* remote users that sometimes have to VPN over 3G so I wanted to get some clarification before patching our VPN subnet.
