  1. Add Linux patch details such as version in include feature of Update Management

    This is a good request , most customers need make sure test servers and prod servers have the same version installed . However, the latest version may be upgraded in the repository frequently , and when it’s time to patch the prod servers, the latest patch version may be different.

    Per my test, we can’t include “version info” in the include list. For example, 'gzip-1.5-9.el7.x8664' is not supported but 'gzip.x8664' works fine .

    Also, better if we can cover “package issued date/updated date filter” as well.

    There are few articles from redhat which is covering how they do…

  2. Pause function for schedule of Update Management

    We need the function that it can temporarily disable the Update Management schedule.

    We would like to disable the Schedule for Update Management. However, if we want to skip the Update Job, we should delete it or manual modify the schedule date that runs periodically.
    in addition, if we delete schedule, we have to recreate it.
    There seems to be no function to disable the schedule in the Update Management console. Also, there was no such command in PowerShell

  3. Provide ability to set a specific reboot sequence order

    I have a cutomers who wants a few specific servers to reboot before the next few.
    I could opportunistically put these in different schedules with maybe 30mins diff, but there is no guarantee that the first schedule is done before the other one is done and suddenly they reboot in the wrong order.

    Could we have this ability?
    In ansible I use the serial option so everything is done serially, but it would be nice if update management could handle the reboots serially at least (And check for heart beat after reboot before continuing).

  4. On-prem Linux VMs

    Is there a way for on-prem Linux VMs to create the root partition in workbooks?

    And can I create new Linux Performance Counters?

  5. Show Updates done by Update Mgmt in Update History on Server

  8. Show scheduled deployments on the VM if they have been created at the RG level

    Currently Update management view against a individual VM only displays scheduled updates if they have been scheduled against individual VMs, if they have been scheduled against entire RGs these don't display on the VMs within the RG.

  9. Add a export option in the Update Management view

    It would be nice to be able to export the list that you have filtered out in the Update Management view. As it is right now, you can't take the information to another step.

  12. Update Management has no locking mechanism

    Hi,
    during testing I scheduled two deployments for the same server at the same time. It seems there is no locking mechanism (EL7 linux deployment) that takes care of this. I don't think having two updates run on the same server at the same time is a really good idea :)

    From ps output it seems that yum locking is saving the system from getting harmed by this, but this is something that I would update management to catch.

    Greetings
    Klaas

  13. Speed up enterprise linux (rhel/centos) updates

    Hi,
    currently you're applying individual updates alphabetically (or so it seems from watching ps)
    /usr/bin/python /bin/yum -y install elfutils-libelf-0.176-4.el7.x8664
    /usr/bin/python /bin/yum install --assumeno elfutils-libs.x86
    64
    [,..]

    This creates overhead within linux that is usually not needed. You have two options in update management for linux: apply all or apply security updates.
    Both have a yum command:
    Update all packages: yum update
    Update all security relevant updates: yum --security update

    This will reduce overhead and should apply packages faster.

    I didn't find the code, so I am not sure why you use different switches for yum, my guess would be…

  15. Compliance report in Update Management

    There is no option to Export the data in Automation account Update Management page where we see the total count of compliant and No machines, There should be option to export detailed report which has individual servers Compliance Status as the patch deployment output is nothing to do with Compliance report.

    Upon clicking to manage a new machine, the banner persists in saying that the machine doesn't have Update Management enabled. Click to manage machines. Please temporarily mute that banner if an attempt for that particular machine is pending.
