    Windows Patch Analysis - Reason why patch is missing not visible in the Console

    Steffen Kreis

      Hi,

       

      i just realized today that in BDSSA i'm able to display the reason why a certain Patch is Missing on a Target Server.

       

      So in the Patch Namespace there is a "Missing Patch Details" -> "Vendor Reason", which contains the information that can normally only be found in the shavlik_results.xml.

       

      Example:

           "File version is less than expected. [\\127.0.0.1\C$\Windows\system32\CRYPT32.DLL 6.1.7601.18150 < 6.1.7601.22473]"


      As it's in BDSSA it must also be available in the BSA-Database. Yet i have found no place in the console where this information gets displayed.


      Am i just not finding it or is this information not available ?
