Once the deployment (Windows and Linux assets) or uninstall (Windows assets only) job is created it runs immediately (On-Demand) or on a specified schedule. You can view the results of a job run, whether all patches got successfully installed/uninstalled or there are failures.
To view the job results, go to Jobs, then from the Quick Actions Menu of a job, click View Progress. You can see the assets on which the patch deployment/uninstall job was run, and the results in the Progress column.
This screen also shows you the assets that are not licensed in Patch Management and assets (only Linux) for which job was Not Applicable due to different platforms of assets and patches. We skip patch installation for these assets.
The pie chart provides a percentage-wise breakup of all asset statuses and allows you to select one or more statuses to filter assets. This pie-chart shows all statuses even if you choose any other status from the left panel.
We also show the following patch count for Windows jobs:
- INSTALLED: Number of patches that were successfully deployed on the agent in the latest job run.
- FAILED: Number of patches that failed to install due to some errors on the agent in the latest job run.
- SKIPPED: Number of patches that were skipped in latest job run.
A few patches might be skipped because the patches are not applicable for the asset, superseded by another patch, or are already installed.
Note: The error logs for failed patches of Linux patch jobs are stored only for 14 days.
Job activities corresponding to the reboot messages and notifications displayed for the asset, are logged at the following location:
You can now add actions that you want to execute before and after the patches are installed for the Windows Deployment job. For more information, see About Pre-Actions and Post-Actions.
The View Actions option on the Job Progress page allows you to view results details of actions after the job is executed.
You can the view action details from the Job Progress option:
