          This issue is resolved in Service Update 1, or SU1, for 2016.3. You should be able to download the patch on the core server using patch manager.


          - Navigate to Tools>Security and Compliance>Patch and Compliance>Download updates

          - Check the box for "LANDESK 10.1 Software Updates" under Windows>Software Updates

          - Click download now and once complete, you should see the update (LD2016_SU-2016-1102) in the Scan>Scan (global) folder.
