Patch Management Advice

(imported topic written by trickey91)


At my company we receive all server patches from an internal patch management department. They provide a central web site where we download the patches in the form of an executable.

I’m trying to find a way to utilize the current Windows patch fixlets to indicate whether a server requires the patch, but have the patch install from an alternate location (i.e. a local server). Any ideas if this can be done?

just edit the action when you deploy to point to the internal location. you will have to edit the size and hash value appropriately.
