    .BAD File - MS Patch




      I am trying to patch MS Critical/High patches - Windows 2000 Server - Some patch got installed but some changed file extension to .bad and modify date to Dec. 31 1969 and those patches fails.

      LDMS 8.8 SP3

          IF you are seeing this on your clients....


          By default LANDesk clients will go to other systems on the same subnet to download a patch, no other systems have it, it will go to the core.


          I have seen this many times, one or more systems on the subnet has a bad file and other clients then and grab it, the client will then do a hash check, find it bad, and it gets renamed .bad



          It is fairly easy to fix, go to Managed Scripts, creat a new custom script, call it "Delete SDMCache" and under the [Machines] section add this:





          Save, it schedule it and run it on all systems on the same subnet as the affected system.


          Re-run the task


          This will clear the cache and the system will then go to the core to get the files
