Hide the patch first. Then create an operational rule with the step 'Patch Synchronization' and run this on the devices
Thank you for the quick reply! I am evaluating this process now.
It appears that finding and hiding the patch did the trick. I no longer see the pending patch in the Patch Job. I am still testing the OR for the Patch Synchronization, but it appears the individual Inventory for Missing Patches on a few test machines is free of the patch of concern.
Thanks again for the information.
