Configure a Patch Profile so that if a device has missed their scheduled patch window, it will begin a full patch installation cycle on the next system start-up. When a device has been offline or away from the office for an extended period of time and missed a patch maintenance window, this ensures that any critical patches are installed as soon as possible when the device connects to the network again.
- Click Configuration > Patch Management.
- In the Patch Profiles area, click Manage Patch Profiles and click the patch profile name.
- In the Install Missed Patches on Next Boot Up section, click Force Missed Patch Installation on Boot and set the time to wait before installing the patches.
- Click Save.
When a device returns to the office, after the defined wait time, Patch Manager will begin updating the device with the scheduled patches.
