K1000 disabled patches, cannot set them to active
I'm starting to use our K1000, and I'm trying to get patches setup and deployed. Under Subscriptions, "Activate New Packages" was not checked previously. I appear to have the patches downloaded, but all patches are marked Disabled.
If I go into the patches, and filter to see disabled patches, i can see the patches. However, if I try to set them to active, I get the error "Status not changed as one or more patch selected is in disabled state", even if I only choose one recent package.
What am I missing?

Under Security-Subscriptions there is a check box "Detect Disabled Patches" I do not have it checked. The description for that says:
"Identify disabled patches when a Detect job is run. If this option is selected, the signatures for disabled patches are downloaded for detection purposes only. Patches cannot be deployed unless they meet the subscription criteria."
I am guessing yours is checked. I can only make my patches Active or Inactive so I can't test anything to replicate your problem. My advice would be to take a close look at your patch subscriptions and determine if you need those downloaded or not.
