    [Question] Automatically Place Patches In Necessary Groups

    Rookie

      Is there a way to automate the process of putting patches into appropriate groups that match a certain criteria?

       

      For instance, I have a group of 5 servers that I want to have their patches placed into a custom group when any of the computers are missing a patch, that way a monthly patch job can run a patch job based upon that custom group.

       

      So, in other words:

      5 Servers run vulscan and detect patch 100, 101, 102, and 103 are missing on X machines in the group. 

      Patch 100, 101, 102 and 103 are then placed into custom group "Missing Patches For Servers"

      My monthly patch schedule runs and patches against the definitions inside "Missing Patches For Servers" custom group.

       

       

      It's similar to the "detected" folder, but more defined so I'm not scanning 7000 definitions on custom groups that are only missing X known patches.

       

       

      Thanks,

      Blake
