KACE Product Support Question

Has anyone created a Task Chain that runs a script, then runs patches, then runs a report to show the patching results?

09/09/2020 264 views

I have a script that take Snapshots of servers, prior to patching.

I also have Patch Schedules that work as expected running at various times during the month.

I now have reports to show the results of those Patches.

I need to create a Task Chain that will run the Snapshot script, then run the Patch Schedule, then run the Report on a schedule.

Looking for suggestions on how to do this or advice on another way to accomplish the same goal in another way.  I am running KACE SMA 10.2.234.

Thank you in advance.

well, you cannot run a report as part of the task schedule.

So you can run the snapshot, the patch in a task chain and do a scheduled report unlinked to that. You may want to add the time of the last time the patching has been run and the result to the report.
