Can't assign a patch policy to one particular workstation

Recommended Posts

I have one customer workstation (actually a laptop) that I cannot assign a patch policy.  All of the other systems in this customer group are fine.  When I try to assign it via my mobile, I get "change OS patch policy command failed".  Nor can I assign it via the Pulseway Web app - it shows "no actions available" for that one system.

I tried remotely restarting the laptop, and I tried repairing the local agent installation, but no joy.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Bob

Hi @BobC

If the action to change the OS patch policy is not available, then it is possible that your account has read only access to OS Patching. For more details about this please check out this article.

Regarding the issue that this functionality was available on your mobile device. If the change was made recently, then it might take 15 to 30 seconds to propagate these changes.

Can you still reproduce this?

Hi Chris,

Yes, the issue still exists for this one laptop.  Regarding the account OS patching access: there is only one user, the administrator, which is me. So, I'm not using Teams/Users.    Incidentally, I did check under the Account/Devices menu; that laptop does show that full access is enabled. For what that's worth.

Hi @BobC,

 

Please send an email to support@pulseway.com regarding this issue and add the trace.log from that system which shows the events while are you trying to change the OS patch policy.

In order to generate logs, please open the Pulseway Manager on the remote system and enable the Diagnostic Logging under the Settings -> Diagnostics. After you've enabled the diagnostic logging, stop the Pulseway service, wait for 15 seconds and then start it. Wait for 3 minutes, reproduce the issue and then send us the trace.log file from the Pulseway's installation folder so we can investigate the issue.

      I would like to move away from using TeamViewer. LTT was just advertising Pulseway, I thought I would try it out. I installed the Remote Control Desktop client (6.6.3) and the Dashboard client (6.5.1), and proceeded to set up an organization, group, site, and policy. Then I downloaded the "Agent" client to the desktop I would like to be able to remote into. I installed, registered my product, assigned it to my  group, and checked the "Enable Remote Control" box.
      I was under the impression this is all I had to do.
      Although both the Remote Control Desktop and Dashboard show the computer, I'm unable to "Start Remote Control Session". It's grayed out. Interestingly, I am able to view all of the system specs, and even successfully restart the computer via the website!
      What might I be doing wrong?
      Thank you for your time!

      Here is a script for Powershell to set the pc to autologon one time [configurable] after restart, with a 15 sec delay
      Someone may find it handy
      Copy paste into Powershell ISE or txt and then rename to *.ps1
      Tested on Windows 7 X64
       
      $RegPath = "HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon" $DefaultUsername = "Insert Username Here" $DefaultPassword = "Insert Password Here" Set-ItemProperty $RegPath "AutoAdminLogon" -Value "1" -type String Set-ItemProperty $RegPath "DefaultUsername" -Value "$DefaultUsername" -type String Set-ItemProperty $RegPath "DefaultPassword" -Value "$DefaultPassword" -type String Set-ItemProperty $RegPath "AutoLogonCount" -Value "1" -type DWord Start-Sleep -Seconds 15 ; Restart-Computer -Force

      Hi there,
      This is usability issue that leaves Pulseway's surveillance under high suspicion.
      We work exclusively in Windows servers.
      My colleague has installed last week a new Pulseway Agent over a server of a new client and he forgot to report this so that I could increase the number of licences resulting that since last week a Pulseway agent from another client's backup server stopped communicating and so we where not aware that backup needed troubleshooting. In fact the server disappeared from our servers
      As I understood the new Pulseway agent kicked out a random Agent already under surveillance and that means that a server that we had total confidence to be monitored was not.
      I'm new in the company and this software and when I've discussed this with my colleagues they've reported to be a known issue and that sometimes the Pulseway agent that stopped being monitored would varied meaning that one server randomly would stop being monitored and then the behaviour would jump to another agent.
      In the Billing/Overview section of your page it always had 72/72 and so no report of "overbooking".
      For this server's agent to show again in the panel I had to re-register it.
      IMO the new ones should stay offline and if this behaviour cannot be controlled, then the moment a client doesn't have licenses the agent shouldn't be able to register.
      We need to be sure that we can rely on the servers where Pulseway agent is installed and configured or we cannot trust the system altogether.
      Thank you for your attention.
