>>Is there a way to force the patching job to include only this bulletin in addition to its normal method of operation?
In your Catalog, create new Smart Group (call it ExcludeButMS12-A03 or anything else you wish) with the following condition:
Match "all" of the following conditions:
"Hotfix" where "BULLETIN_ID" "does not equal" "MS12-A03"
"Hotfix" where "PATCH_TYPE" "equals" "Security Tool"
Expect this Smart Group to list all the Security Tools except for MS12-A03.
Modify your Patch Analysis Job to scan against 'Security Patches' and 'Security Tools', and add the Exclude Filter to be "ExcludeButMS12-A03".
Expect Analysis Job to scan against all security patches and tools, and exclude all the security tools except for MS12-A03.
Thanks, this is what I was planning to do assuming that smartgroup would work. There do not appear to be very many classified as 'Security Tool' when I use this smartgroup so it looked a bit suscpicious.
