    Use of multiple patch smart groups for Windows patching

    russ mcdowell

      I have a patch catalog that has Windows OS, IE, and a few other products filtered as a 'base' catalog.  I narrow what we patch for with a smart group looking for Important and Critical security bulletins.

      Recently I had to add a MS Security Advisory so I created a 2nd patch smart group with just it.


      In my patch analysis I select List and drill down and select these two patch smart groups for the analysis.


      I ran the analysis and under Server View > Successful Targets I selected the machines I wanted to patch and created the remediation like I normally would.  Patch analysis shows the need for the Security Advisory patch.


      Only about half of the servers needing the Security Advisory patch installed it after three analysis and remediation runs.


      Any idea why I'd get these sorts of results?
