  2. 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.

    Update Agent is 'Ready' in VM view of the machine but it 'fails to list machines' in Automation Account view and 'fails to check for updates' in the VM view.

  6. Machine doesn't have 'Update Management' enabled. Click to manage machines

    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.

  7. Create filter by schedule membership

    In AzureUpdate Management I have got several filter. Missing: I want to see the status by schedule. So at least all systems should by shown by membership of a schedule.

  9. Auto-approve / manually approve updates in Azure

    Would be great if we had the option to auto-approve some updates (ie Definition Updates) and manually approve CU's and other patches within Azure Update Management.

  10. Update Staging Server for on Prem Servers

    With hundres or thousands of servers that could be patched on-prem the amount of data that needs to be downloaded is alot. A staging server where the patches that are beeing installed will be downloaded to and then the update service connects to the local server instead of azure to download. Not having 1000 servers connecting to azure to get patches and fill up the internet connection.

  11. Wheres the simple configuration guide

    We need a simplified guide for update management.

    I've been trying to find a way to enable update management, across subscriptions, for both new and existing Vms. So that whenever a new VM is deployed, it automatically onboarded.

    Why isn't this the first thing to read in the documentation? Who has got time to go into update management each time a new Vm is depoloyed and onboard it manually.

    There must be a way of doing this, but where?

  12. Get members of a Deployment schedule

    I would like to generate reports on which servers that are included in my patch groups (deployment schedules). Afaik I can only see this information by querying old deployment history in the logs but not the current members, such as manually added machines.

  14. 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…

  16. Display Assigned Schedule

    It would be nice to have one of the columns in the 'Machines' view display what schedule the machine is assigned to.

  17. Show all VMs, even if they are powered off

    Need to be able to see VMs that aren't running everyday. It should still show the status from the last time it reported. This is common when you have lab or other non-prod machines that are running every day.

  18. Possibility to see VMs being under Update Management via policy

    Possibility to distinguish VMs which are under Update Management and incorporate the results into ARM script to work as a policy.

    Policy would help to track which VMs are left over of Update Management service.

  19. When viewing the update history on an Azure VM, it would be nice to see the last 6 months of updates. Like it used to do.

    You used to do this. Then near the end of 2019 you stopped. You already have this metric measuring "Failed updates over the last 6 months", right? And it used to actually do something, right?

  20. Add support/feature to invoke a Cluster Aware Update (CAU) run via Update Management

    A feature to invoke a CAU run or patch clustered servers not setup for CAU.

    Today we use Azure Runbooks to invoke CAUs or we stagger the update management schedule times for each cluster node. It's an ad-hoc workaround and it would be nice if this was something supported out-of-box with Update Management.
