  • thanks, but this creates more than 1500-2000 patches , would this slow down the machines ? as its going to copy more than 1500 patch files to machines. or is it ok to select patches released in last 2 months?
    • If you are seeing that many patches, it sounds like you might be including superseded patches.
      Under patch management > subscriptions, you can select "Inactivate superseded patches".
      • yes, its already enabled.
    • i hope you have replication server in place, which take down the network traffic . I don't think any machine will need 1500-2000 patches if you have image refresh every quarter or half yearly. You can run detect on test machine ( exact replica of production and see how many patches are detected on that , it will give you more insight as what would be happening in end. ) Patches may vary as few patches get missed else we should have same number across. Also, if you are just starting the patching after a halt , you may find more patches to be deployed. we don't deploy software installer in patches so you may want to refine those part along.
