Patch Manager 2.1.5 Hotfix 1 Release Notes

 

Updated: June 14, 2018

Fixed issues

This hotfix addresses the following issues:

  • The Discovery task for subnets cannot retrieve MAC addresses from a machine located in other subnets. To resolve this issue, this hotfix adds an additional WMI request to the Discovery task that uses credentials to retrieve MAC addresses from machines located in other subnets.
  • The Windows Firewall tab does not work correctly for systems running Microsoft® Windows Server® 2016 (build 1709). To resolve this issue, this hotfix enables Patch Manager to retrieve firewall information without errors for Patch Manager servers running Windows Server 2016 (build 1709).
  • "WMI providers are not installed" error when viewing the Windows Update History on computers running Windows® 10 and Windows Server 2016. This hotfix resolves this issue and includes a new version of Patch Manager WMI providers.
  • The Windows Update log cannot be viewed within Patch Manager. This issue is caused by changes in the Windows Update log on computers running Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016. This hotfix resolves this issue.
