Ok I have read up on quite a few items and some items are close, but do not give automation options. I think there is 2 main parts, but may be more items co complete this.

What I am thinking is we could create a smart label that gives us the computers that are suspended in our patch group and send alerts out to that new label that says we will continue patching tonight/today. Then a final report that we would send out to IT that will have errors, not completed from the approved group and such.

As an example I have a patching custom schedule set (0 0 10,11 3 *) and it is set to suspend after 420 min so that we do not effect production starting around 8am. Then after we give them 2 nights of chances to have their computer patched we have a cleanup detect and deploy scheduled that will start at noon on march 11th and run when the computer connects next time.
I also setup alerts to be sent out to the computers that we will be patching and the computer may restart. We want to setup one for the next day if the computer is in suspended state, so they know it may restart that night as well.

Thanks HOSH

Is anyone thinking about this, or we trying to do something that is not thought about.
