Does have some back-and-forth config for Huon, the list below is in the ‘ideal’ order.
1) **Ensure Group Policy doesn’t conflict with NABLE**
2) All servers and workstations REQUIRE Nable Agent for Patch management to work
Configured once per client:
Configuration>Patch Management > Caching – Configure the location for the storage + ensure appropriate disk space.
BELOW: I recommend you create each group you require all at once to save going back and forward.
Configured per Server/Workstation Group:
Configuration>Filters> Create Sever Groups + Workstation group – clone if applicable from MCAA or NBRS
NB: Specify the Client as the first rule to ensure you do not impact any other client with the same server name
eg. More than 1 client could have a server called ‘MX1’ . That would bring other clients into this patching group.
Configuration>Patch Management> Create Profiles, you CANNOT enable ‘download before install’ until you configure a schedule. So do that then go back to the general tab.
-Set the check for updates 5-10mins apart between server groups (group 1- 06:00, group 2 – 06:10, etc)
-Set the Patch schedule 90mins apart between groups (group 1 – 00:00, group 2 – 01:30, etc)
NB – Associated rules have not been created at this point, but auto configure after the below step is completed.
Configuration> Monitoring> Rules>
-Maintenance Windows are added in this section also.
-Create you maintenance window to match your patch time
Finally – Configuration>Patch Management>Automatic Approvals> Critical + Security Updates + set products, then Set targets.
Then Create Wake on Lan for desktops…
WOL is required for after-hours patching of workstation
