All computers need software


  • Hi there,

    My daily report shows that all computers need software. But I don't have, and never had, any software being published by SCE.

    Is this a known bug?

  • it's kind of strange, im having the same problem.  I've published 1 software package (Adobe Flash Player) and on the deployment details of the package i have:

    Unsuccessful - 0

    In Progress - 0

    Successful - 126

    Not Applicable - 0

    Unknown -3

    But on the Client Status summary page i have:

    Unsuccessful - 0

    Successful - 8

    In Progress - 97


    Something doesn't add up...


    Ok, so I changed my can still call me Tom if you like. It's conclusions...mat.

  • Hi,

    Is there any further development on this issue?

    I still have health report saying that all my computers need software, but I don't have any software package being published.

  • I'd love to get an update on this as well. I have exactly the same issue, plus I also have Updates that refuse to leave the Needed Updates category despite being successfully deployed to the group it is assigned to. If SCE thinks a computer needs the update/software it would be really helpful if there was a report that actually tells you which ones it thinks needs it. The Update Deployment for Approved Updates and the Software Deployment for Approved Software don't tally at all with the Daily Report.

    I've seen a few other threads with similar issues so it would be nice to get some feedback on how to fix it.
