WSUS MP - are the Alert Descriptions blank for anyone else? RRS feed

  • Question

  • One thing I have always wondered about this Management Pack, why are the Alert Descriptions blank?  Is it just me?  Or are they blank for anyone else?

    It shows the Description from the Event in the Alert Context tab of the Alert, but nothing in the Alert Description in the console, or in the email notification sent about the alert.

  • I'm thinking about just removing this management pack and making my own since it's pretty much useless without the Alert Descriptions.  Am I really the only one experiencing this problem?  Or am I the only one using this MP?

  • I see we also get the empty alert description, but it shouldn't as the alert description has been set to "$Data/Context/EventDescription$". I'm not really worried about this though, because of the alertname it's pretty obvious what the problem is.

    Also keep in mind the wsus mp only picks up events and you're in control of the events with wsusutil.
