Thanks for the tip, I will look into this and figure out how I can do this differently. However, I need to be able to report patch compliancy in our company, and I’m not sure how to do that if I don’t have all the required patches in a baseline.
On a side note, I could remove the “superceded” patches from my baseline, if I knew what patch they were superceded by, and make sure those patches were in the baseline. Do you know a query to run to find out this info? Otherwise, I could look each one up on microsoft’s site, I guess.
I am interested as to how you use BigFix to report on patch compliancy. In every company I’ve ever worked, we have always had a set of defined patches required in our environment. With BigFix, I can do this with a baseline, but there are good patch compliancy reports that compare a group of servers to a baseline. I’ve made my own, but it’s very ugly!
