SCCM Patch Report issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All

    im new in SCCM and i've started to deploy patches to several workstation. I've created an update list for June's 2011 patch and deployed to all the testing workstation and servers. I want to see the patch status, to see whether the patches is installed or not and i select the Deployments that contain an update list which is under the Software Update - B. Deployment Management report group.

    But when i run the report, under Update for Microsoft Office 2007 System, it shows column Required - 4 and column Installed - 12....

    From what is understand, only 4 laptop is required to install this patch. if so, why does it displayed Installed - 12? Shouldnt it be Installed - 4? I dont quite understand....

  • Once the update is installed it should become compliant after the next Update scan (and possible restart).

  • You should be looking at the report Enforcement state for a deployment you can access the report from the within the software update feature main site in the Configmgr. console.

  • Hi Kent

    I did run the Enforcement state for a deployment report and under the Last State column, it has:

    Compliant: 37 machines

    Enforcement State Unknown: 4 machines

    Failed to install update: 2 machines


    Sorry to ask, but what does compliant means? Does it means 37 machines "is supposed" to get this patch?

     

    Hi Eswar,

    oh, ok... So i can say i cannot depend on the Required field to know how many PC is required to install the patches but instead the figures in Required field means how many machines that havent install the patch correct? And the figures in Installed column means the total no of machines that has been installed with the patch...
