3rd Party App Patching Methods? Not KSDU, Chocolatey or Ninite.

  • We're currently working through some issues with KSDU, and need to continue to manage 3rd party updates on endpoints.

    What other methods are people employing to manage these updates etc.

    Thanks

  • Shavlik is the grand daddy of third party patching but I am curious what you don't like about Ninite?  We tried KSDU for about a minute and then simply wrote Agent Procedures for Ninite as that was much simpler

    Are you looking at pointers to improve upon preventing issues with KSDU or complete alternatives like running Ninite through it's own procedure?

    As far as KSDU goes - I have created Views for each individual software then I have policies that attach the specific KSDU profile to the system.  I filter one-off exclusions via a Custom Field in the Views.

    We used to do the Ninite scripting but went away from it as the reporting/validation of patching proved difficult.
