About Patch Mgmt.

Recommended Posts

I am curious to know why 3rd party patch mgmt. is an additional paid feature. Before I would get notified for like Adobe Reader needed an update, know I have to pay additional to get this notification?

What else within the features we already get will be removed to a "module" that we have to pay additional for? I only oversee around 60 endpoints, so I am not a big player, but there are issues now that are making me look and trial other RMM solutions. 

Today I logged into my dash-panel as I do everyday M-F only to be greeted with 53 notifications for critical updates for Windows. Going into to the systems one by one, I quickly realized that something is not right. When viewing the systems, it clearly stated there were updates for Windows needed, but going to the actual systems available updates, I see "No updates found". Is Windows itself considered a 3rd party now?

While writing this:

20 May 2019 08:45
1 critical update is available on computer 'REDACTED' in group 'REDACTED - Workstations'.
 
Available Updates
No Updates Found

I would assume it's because 3rd-party patching is a vendor-specific process and therefore takes significant time to implement properly.

      I've seen some old posts about this and solutions in older versions that have since been removed. However, I don't see the settings or options in this iteration as of today.
      We monitor some generic services, ie Apache, and other proprietary services that are critical to our program running. At times they hiccup or run into an issue where they fail to start or stop. At this point we would want Pulseway to not only send a notification but also attempt to restart the service(s).
      Any way to accomplish this or any roadmap on getting that feature rolled in?

      It would be great if we could make Asset Info available when devices are offline.
      For example if a remote users PC fails to function and is still under warranty trying to explain to a user where to find the device Make, Model and serial number to log a warranty case is not always easy.
      If the asset information was available when the device was off line then it would make this process mach easier as it contains all the information required
      Cheers

      Hi Everyone, As everyone knows Windows Updates are not bullet proof and they cause problems periodically with examples being flashing screens on logins for touch screen machines, lost audio abilities, files going missing and so on.  The goal of this Topic is to provide a way for all the members of this forum to report issues with KB's either that they've experienced or that have been reported elsewhere thus allowing all those participating to determine if they want to adjust their global policies to hold off on a KB or make other changes.  Your participation is greatly appreciated and I'm sure other tech's will be thankful for the information provided.
      If you need to look up a KB this link is useful:
      https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Home.aspx
      Not confirmed, yet, but I believe this will show subsequent KB's related to a errant KB.

      Good day,
      Firstly I want to state that I am not familiar with this application and that this is the first time that I've worked with it so please go easy on me.
      So I need to setup Remote Access for one of our vendors. I created the account for him but when he tries to log in remotely it gives him an "unable to access remote server" error.
      Could someone point me in the right direction?
      With thanks

      This pertains to the PSA..
      I know this is a SMALL thing, but it would be great if the phone number and email address default when inputting contacts could be customizable, or default to WORK.  I imagine most of the MSPs that use Pulseway service businesses, and it would save a click or two when inputting a new contact.
