What happened to "Daytime patch missed" ???

Postby steve.technigogo » Sat Oct 28, 2017 12:12 pm

In the legacy patch manger, we relied on the "daytime patch missed" setting to patch laptops on an appropriate day of the week if they were not online when the Sunday patching ran. In the new patch manager, it seems that daytime patching is just a yes or no option. MONDAY IS NOT THE APPROPRIATE DAY to run patching if a laptop was offline over the weekend.

Labtech/Automate, where did this setting go?

Steve, yes we used to make use in a similar way, in addition we said to run daytime patching if a PC had missed 2 patching sessions.
So in effect a loss in functionality with the new patch manager.

Something else to consider.
IF a machine does a day time patch, and the patch manager is not set to force the machine to reboot or nag the user; we don't nag as it annoyed users.
What happens is the next time the patch window comes around (typically 3 am), if the machine is in a pending reboot status (from the daytime patch) it won't reboot the machine in preparation. I'd have expected the patch manager to know it has a pending reboot and then do it, so it could then continue with more patches.

I found this out by speaking to Tech support.

We also have set the Windows 10 machines to not do "FastBoot", as when a user shuts down a PC, this was not completing the patch install. Only a reboot completed the patch - which users tend not to do.
We edit Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Power\HiberbootEnabled to = 0

Do others have a similar issue / work around as we do?

Okay - So it's not just me.

Thanks for the tip on the no "FastBoot"
