Template default behaviour?

  • So I have a workstation template which monitors XP, Vista and Windows 7 machines and I need to know the default behaviour for patch approval.

    For example I know there some parts of Kaseya which tests the O/S version (maybe application packaging), is patching one of those parts? So if I approve some XP patches will they or will they not try to be installed on say my Windows 7 boxes? Or does the O/S just reject the patches that aren't intended for them?

    Or am I better designing templates for specific workstation machines?

  • It will only try to install patches that are specific to the OS on each agent.

    Approving an Exchange patch on a policy for XP workstations causes no harm as the Exchange patch will not be applied.
