I had this same issue with Java Updates. I found that you had to put them where the core wants them. In order to determine this I did the following:
I used the JAVAFXv2.2.21_Manual (ID)
1.) Open Patch and Compliance
2.) Right click the item in question
3.) Select Clone
4.) Right click an item in the "Detection Rules:" section
5.) Select Properties
6.) On the left hand side click the heading Patch information
7.) on the right hand side click the "Generate MD5 Hash" button
8.) you should get an error and that error should telly ou where it looked for the file ex: unable to generate hasf for \\<corename>\LDLogon\Patch\INTL\Oracle\javafx_sdk-2_2_21-windows-i586.exe. please make sure file exists.
That path is where you need to place your manually downloaded files.
9.) cancel out of everything
10.) Move the downloaded patches to the path above
Now if you check the original item for me it was JAVAFXv2.2.21_Manual you should now see that the files now show as downloaded.
Just re-read your post... you may already be doing this... I apologize if this isnt what you were looking for... it could be that you just have some items that cant be repaired. I believe thier ID's would be listed as "Detect Only"
I click generate hash, and nothing happens.
all of my patches sit in the patch folder.
C:\Program Files (x86)\LANDesk\ManagementSuite\ldlogon\patch
But when I'm going to download patches.
some say "Verifying local file AcrobatSecUpd1016.msp Local file is up to date. Skipping."
others say "Skipping manual download patch CuteWriter_3.0v4.exe"
is there a way to make the core know which ones are already downloaded and will look and say "file is up to date"
as opposed to me having to go through the whole list and manually check off which ones I already downloaded...
LeVarCW -- I do not know the answer to that question. I will have to leave it to a pro to fill us in on that one...
I'll just open a support ticket. but thanks.
I just checked and it looks like all of the patches (definitions) that need you to go out and manually download the files end with _manual in the file name.
The other patches should download with content.
Of the "manual" ones, most of the MS ones are hotfixes and should only be applied if you are having an issue that they fix. Very few of the "manual" patches are security related.
