WUA Patch Scan

  • What does the script WUA Patch Scan do?
    Does this script already download the patches, and so yes, where does it place the patches?

    In some cases, our machines run out of disk space, after the WUA Patch Scan.Confused

  • Windows Update Agent (WUA) takes the latest Microsoft Update Catalog released every second Tuesday of every month (Patch Tuesday) and will scan the machine for applicable patches and logs the results.

    What Kaseya Patch Mgmt then does is reads the return info and filters out according to the Approval by Patch Policy. Be mindful of patches set to Denied (pending approval) there. These patches will act like a deny until you approve them.
