    QUESTION:

    When multiple Windows patches are deployed to a system as a result of remediation performing the Undo operation via the Deploy Job will trigger the undo/remove for all patches deployed during the job.  Is it possible to only uninstall/remove a single patch instead ?
     


    ANSWER:

    To uninstall/remove a single patch create a new Deploy Job that runs the uninstall for the patch:
     

       
    • Live browse a target, expand the HotFixes server object
    •  
    • Find the particular patch that you want to uninstall, right click on it and select Uninstall which will bring up a job creation wizard
    •  
    • Select the patch from a Windows Catalog (to pickup the uninstall instructions)
    •  
    • Select Enable Single Job Mode to allow a reboot if it's needed by the uninstall
    •  
    • If the same patch should be uninstalled on multiple targets select those additional targets as well during the wizard
    •  
    • Proceed with running the uninstall Job.
