Select the patch assessment interval

If you use role-based administration:

  • You must have the Policy setting - patch right to configure a patch policy.
  • You cannot edit a policy if it is applied outside your active sub-estate.

For more information, see Managing roles and sub-estates.

To set the patch assessment interval:

  1. Check which patch policy is used by the group(s) of computers you want to configure.
  2. In the Policies pane, double-click Patch. Then double-click the policy you want to change.
  3. In the Patch Policy dialog box, click the drop-down arrow of the Assess for missing patches field, and select the appropriate interval. Click OK.

    To assess at this interval, patch assessment must be enabled in the policy.
