Scans for compatible Windows Feature Updates.

Detect and Stage

Scans for compatible Windows Feature Updates, and downloads the applicable files to the agent device for later deployment.

Detect, Stage and On-demand Deploy

Detects Windows Feature Updates that are installed or missing from managed devices, downloads the applicable files to the agent device, and causes the Windows system tray icon to alert the user.

The Agent Status Icon On Device option must be enabled in the agent communication settings. You can find these settings on the Organization Detail page, under Communication and Agent Settings (if one or more Organization components are enabled), or on the Communication Settings page (if you do not have an Organization component). For more information, see Configure Agent communication and log settings.

Action

Description

All Devices

To apply this schedule to all managed devices, select this options. Clear the check box to limit the patch action to specific labels or devices.

Device Labels

Restrict the action to the feature updates using the labels that you select here. This is the most commonly used option.

a.
Click Manage Associated Labels.
b.
In the Select Labels dialog box that appears, drag one or more labels (as applicable) to the Limit Run to area, then click OK.

To use this option, you must already have Smart Labels for the feature updates. See Using Smart Labels for patching.

Devices

Run patch actions on the devices that you select.

6.
In the Schedule section, specify the applicable options for the schedule.

Option

Description

None

Run in combination with an event rather than on a specific date or at a specific time. This option is useful if you want to patch servers manually, or perform patch actions that you do not want to run on a schedule.

Every _ hours

Run at a specified interval.

Every day/specific day at HH:MM

Run daily at a specified time, or run on a designated day of the week at a specified time.

Run on the nth of every month/specific month at HH:MM

Run on the nth day every month, (for example, the first or the second) day of every month, or a specific month, at the specified time.

Run on the nth weekday of every month/specific month at HH:MM

Run on the specific weekday of every month, or a specific month, at the specified time.

Custom

Run according to a custom schedule.

Use standard 5-field cron format (extended cron format is not supported):

Use the following when specifying values:

Spaces ( ): Separate each field with a space.
Asterisks (*): Include the entire range of values in a field with an asterisk. For example, an asterisk in the hour field indicates every hour.
Commas (,): Separate multiple values in a field with a comma. For example, 0,6 in the day of the week field indicates Sunday and Saturday.
Hyphens (-): Indicate a range of values in a field with a hyphen. For example, 1-5 in the day of the week field is equivalent to 1,2,3,4,5, which indicates Monday through Friday.
Slashes (/): Specify the intervals at which to repeat an action with a slash. For example, */3 in the hour field is equivalent to 0,3,6,9,12,15,18,21. The asterisk (*) specifies every hour, but /3 restricts this to hours divisible by 3.

Examples:

View Task Schedule

Click to view the task schedule. The Task Schedule dialog box displays a list of scheduled. Click a task to review the task details. For more information, see View task schedules.

Timezone

The timezone to use when scheduling the action. Select Server to use the timezone of the appliance. Select Agent to use the timezone of the managed device.

Run on next connection if offline

Run the action the next time the managed device connects to the appliance, if the device is currently offline. This option is useful for laptops and other devices that are periodically offline. If this option is not selected, and the device is offline, the action does not run again until the next scheduled time.

Delay run after reconnect

Delay the schedule by a specified amount of time. The time delay period begins when the patch action is scheduled to run.

End after

The time limit for patching actions.

For example, if you schedule patches to run at 04:00, you might want all patching actions to stop at 07:00 to prevent bandwidth issues when users start work. To do so, you could specify 180 in the minutes box.

When this time limit is reached, any patching tasks that are in progress are suspended, and their status on Security logs is Suspended.

These patching tasks do not resume on the next run and instead start from the beginning with each scheduled patching action.

Option

Description

Created

The date and time the schedule is created.

Modified

The date and time the schedule is last modified.

Last Run

The date and time the schedule is last run.

Name

A name that identifies the schedule. This name appears on the Windows Feature Update Schedules list page.

Action

The action associated with the schedule:

Detect: Scans for compatible Windows Feature Updates.
Detect and Stage: Scans for compatible Windows Feature Updates, and downloads the applicable files to the agent device for later deployment.
Detect, Stage and On-demand Deploy: Detects Windows Feature Updates that are installed or missing from managed devices, downloads the applicable files to the agent device, and causes the Windows system tray on the agent device to alert the user that the updates are ready for deployment. The user can then initiate the deployment process at their convenience.
The Agent Status Icon On Device option must be enabled in the agent communication settings. You can find these settings on the Organization Detail page, under Communication and Agent Settings (if one or more Organization components are enabled), or on the Communication Settings page (if you do not have an Organization component).

Description

A brief description of the Windows Feature Update schedule.

Devices

This field only appears when the schedule is configured to apply to all devices.

Windows Feature Update

The name and version of the Windows Feature Update.

Device Label

One or more Smart Labels associated with the devices against which the schedule runs. For more information, see Using Smart Labels for patching. This field only appears when the schedule is configured to apply to selected devices.

Device Name

One or more selected devices against which the schedule runs. This field only appears when the schedule is configured to apply to selected devices.

Detect Label

One or more Smart Labels associated with the scheduled updates. For more information, see Using Smart Labels for patching. This field only appears when the schedule is configured to detect selected updates.

Alerts

Detect and Deploy schedules only. The alerts displayed to users when update actions run:

OK: Run immediately.
Cancel: Cancel until the next scheduled run.
Snooze: Prompt the user again after the Snooze Duration.

Reboot

Detect and Deploy schedules only. The options for rebooting the managed device:

No Reboot: The device does not reboot even though a reboot might be required for the update to take effect. This option is not recommended because deploying updates without rebooting when required can leave systems unstable. Further, updates that require reboots are only shown as deployed after the reboot.
Prompt User: Waits for the user to accept the reboot before restarting the device. If the user snoozes or cancels the reboot, the update stops until a reboot occurs. Selecting a Snooze Duration in the agent dialog box that appears on the target device pauses the reboot prompt for the specified snooze interval.
Force Reboot: Reboots as soon as an update that requires it is deployed. Forced reboots cannot be canceled. Force Reboot works well for desktops and servers. You might not want to force reboot on laptops. Force Reboot works well with servers because they usually have no dedicated users. However, it is important to warn users that services will not be available when servers are being updated and re-booted. See Best practices for patching.

Schedule

The selected update schedule. Click View Task Schedule to see a detailed task scheduler. In the dialog box that appears, click a task to review the task details. For more information, see View task schedules.

Run on Next Connection in Offline

Indicates if the schedule runs the action the next time the managed device connects to the appliance, if the device is currently offline.

Delay Run After Reconnect

If configured, this option indicates the amount of time the schedule is delayed for. The time delay period begins when the update action is scheduled to run.

End After

If configured, this option indicates the maximum amount of time the schedule can run for. When this time limit is reached, any update tasks that are in progress are suspended.
