We have an application that requires an older version of Firefox.  We have Firefox installed and set to no auto updates on the endpoints that require the old version.  But the Kace 1000 pushes the newest version to all endpoints.


I need to put those machines that require updates except for Firefox in a new label and assign that to a new smart label that bypasses updates to Firefox.  I can't figure out how to create the new smart label just for specific machines and have a new patching schedule for those systems which will then not have the check mark for Firefox updates.

  • You will need to build a manual SQL label.

    Because you're asking for a Label that mixes Patches and Devices.

    And Smart Labels are classified, in:

    Patches Labels
    Device Labels

    Since you need a crossover, SQL is the way.
  • Without knowing more about your environment I'm not sure if there is a characteristic that is particular to those machines that you don't want to upgrade Firefox on to create a Smart Label, but you could just create a Label and manually assign the machines to that Label.
    As far as exuding these machines from other Smart Labels they might fall under I'd probably use IP address does not match REGEX and exclude their IPs if there wasn't a better option.
    After that you could create the Smart Label for patches that includes what is desired, but excludes Firefox.
    Then a Deploy job that uses those two labels.
    Not sure this is the best way, but it's how I would approach the issue.
