Kace task priority - Patch Deployment task

05/14/2017 1285 views

I can see in the Agent Tasks list, all the different tasks have different priorities ranging from 25 to 50 to 100, and it seems 25 is the lower the number is the higher priority.  It seems patch deployment tasks are given priority of 100 which is low priority.

Is it possible to change or configure the priority of a patch deployment schedule?  I remember when I talked to the Kace rep before, they showed me that you can set priority for some tasks, but I don't remember which one it was.

My main concern however is that I would like to increase the priority of patch deployments so that they happen before other tasks in the queue.

I don't think you can change the priority of patch schedules. You can see the status and priority of agent tasks by going to Settings > Support > Display Agent task status (under the heading "Troubleshooting Tools").

If you're concerned about running patching before other tasks, my only suggestion would be to run the patch schedule(s) more frequently.
