I have a server that has Office 2016 RTM on it and trying to get it up to date so it requires something in excess of 50 updates to be installed.
It isn’t getting to the installation because downloads fail.
Is there a way to skip that fixlet if the download fails after x attempts?
I added “_BESGather_Download_RetryLimit = 3” to my Bigfix server and relays, but it doesn’t make a difference.
The option “If a member action fails, the action group will continue to run.” is also checked.
Once the download gets to that fixlet it just keeps going and never installs anything.
I removed one of the fixlets from my list of patches and tried again, but there’s another one so who knows how many of them don’t exist anymore.
The specific fixlet I’m referring to is KB2920724 (ID: 292072403).
The link produces a 404 File not found error.

Does HCL perform a check a their own fixlet download links to verify them on a frequent basis? If not, I might log a RFE for it.
