Software Deployment Question
K1000 and Java Patches.
So, with the fairly recent changes to the Java development cycle, how is everyone handling Java patches? We have 20 or so machine, spread through out 3 buildings that are heavily dependant on Java. Java also requires itself to be the latest version before it will run any applets. However, the K1000 will not download Java updates until after 10 days from their release date.
Download the new JRE installer once Oracle releases it. Create a Managed Install to push out the new version to all PCs in a label. This has worked, partially. Some machines never get the update until you force an inventory update. Other machines never get the update at all! They are listed in the Installing Status listing.
Is there a better way to do this?
