Manuall Invoke Patch management prompt after user snoozes

07/13/2016 740 views
I was asked a question by one of our faculty members today and thought I would run it by someone in here to find an answer.
After the patch management prompt shows up, this user hit snooze.  We have set the snooze intervals to 120 minutes between each notice.  Is there a way to manually invoke the notice to reappear again before the 120 minutes is up if the user decides they wanted to get it out of the way before they leave for the day?

I did look through C:\Program Files (x86)\Dell\KACE but not sure which one would possibly make the "Install updates" or "reboot" prompt to reappear.

Any ideas?

  • I can't imagine one could invoke it from the machine since the patch job is still running. You can "Run Now" from the console (duplicate the job and just target the one machine) but that is likely not a realistic option.
  • Yeah, I don't believe there is a way to do that unless you do what rockhead44 described but again, not a realistic option.

Hypothetically, you could have a shortcut on the local computer which would invoke a KACE script, which would apply a label to that device, and then have that label be targeted by a patch schedule that runs on a very short interval. I think the local user would need admin rights, though, and there's the issue of the wait time depending on the patch schedule.
