Windows Patches needed


See details on my blog .  A DataSource that shows which Windows patches are needed. The patch names, and KB numbers show as instances and are grouped by Microsoft's 'classifications'. A special instance named 'summary' shows how many days since the last patch was installed and how many patches are needed.

  • Hello,

    This is my selection it should be 43 items but I have only 23 machines after 12 hours which get the datasource!

    Looking in this issue



  • Hello,

    All servers in the group assigned for this datasource have different results:

    1. the datasource is populated but the "updatecount" remains blank 

    the datasource does not appear on the server:


    ANy idea for this various behavior?

    WinRM is failing to connect to that server. Do you have WinRM enabled on that server and all the right credentials loaded into LM as properties on that device?

  • Apologies for reviving a somewhat old thread, this is working great for us so far
    I was just wondering if its possible to turn the data into a dashboard?

    As an example it would display / work something like this -

    Widget: Security Updates
    KB name/  information:  KB4579979
    Devices required: 5

    Then click the 5 would display the machines its required on

    Is something like this possible?
