  1. Log in to the Patch Manager Administrator Console.
  2. Locate and select a computer to update.
  3. In the Actions pane, click Update Management Wizard. 
  4. Select Download and install all needed approved updates, and click Next.
  5. Delete all default rules, select Load Template to load an existing template, and click Next.
    The Task Options Wizard screen displays, allowing you to select computers for your patches. 
    if a different Task Options Wizard screen displays (as shown below), the rule template may have been modified. 


  • All Patch Manager versions
  • Microsoft® Windows Server® 2012


The rule template used in the Update Management Wizard was modified. 


Verify that you are using the correct rule template. If the template is correct, do one of the following: 

  • Use the Update Management task instead of the Update Management Wizard.
  • Replace the current rule template with a new template. Use this template for all subsequent procedures.
