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.

      Looking for a script that I can run to drop from XXX domain, set to "WORKGROUP" and reboot.    I used to have this in a command line form that I can't find.

      Hello,
      I've been trying to turn on my computer when I'm away from the house using both mobile data and another WiFi connection. When I'm on the same network the wake up command works but if I'm using mobile data I'll get the message "Wake up command failed" and when I'm on another network it says "wake up command sent" but nothing happens. I have the necessary port forwarded (UDP 9) and through the Pulseway android app port monitor I can see it works. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Thanks

      I changed phones recently and the new app says:
      'This device is pending approval. Login to the WebApp and approve it from the account devices page.'
      If I got to https://my.pulseway.com/main/account/devices there is no device to approve.
      Am I doing something wrong?

      Here is a Batch script to empty the SoftwareDistribution Folder.  It stops any installer processes in the background, temporarily disables the Windows Update Service, deletes everything in the Software Distribution folder then sets the Windows update service back to automatic and starts the service.
      @echo off
      CD C:\
      taskkill /F /im setup.exe
      taskkill /F /im ose00000.exe
      taskkill /F /im msiexec.exe
      sc config wuauserv start= disabled
      net stop wuauserv
      PowerShell.exe Remove-Item C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\* -Force -Recurse
      sc config wuauserv start= demand
      net start wuauserv
