Using the K1000 demo before we go ahead and shell out the cash for the virtual appliance and we're trying to get patching to work. I forced a patch update overnight and now have some active patches ready to deploy to some test machines. However, we are consistently getting "Patch Tip # 3. Patching is currently disabled for windows, because patch signatures are missing from the K1000. Please check the server logs for download errors, and rerun the patch download."

Our log shows this when I force an update:

Any ideas?

Try the download again. If you get the same error on the same file and the two checksums are the same again then please open a ticket with support. If the two checksums are different then it may be something killing your download.

If possible, elminating intermediaries can help (proxies, etc) by making the problem simpler.

Just tried again and getting the same checksums and we're not using a proxy. I'll open a ticket with Kace.
