IBM BigFix is pleased to announce an update to the WebUI Patch Policy feature. This release contains an enhancement to the Patch Policy schedules, allowing users to better configure and control the behavior of automatic patch executions.
These configurations can now be set according to your individual needs:
- Pre-caching mechanism allowing required files to be downloaded prior to patching
- Stagger patching start time to reduce network load
- Patching behavior in relation to patching failures
- Force restart endpoints after patching
These new features give the console operator the ability to quickly deploy patches and restore the endpoints to the desired security state.
Actions to Take:
Update the Patch Policies application site to version 4 from the Application Update Manager. For information about the Application Update Manager, see https://ibm.co/2A6BMeZ.
We hope you find them useful.
