Version 2

    Purpose

     

    This document explains the usage of Predefined Patch Scan Templates and the differences between the Security Patch Scan and the WUScan Default Patch Scan Templates

     

    Description


    Security Patch Scan and WUScan are the predefined patch scanning templates provided with Shavlik Protect. The predefined templates cannot be modified. Both predefined templates do the following:

    • Use data from the patch data XML file
    • Allow the scanner engine to scan 64 machines simultaneously
    • Report on all installed and missing patches

     

    The primary differences between the templates are:

    • Security Patch Scan: Scans for missing and installed security patches. This is the default scan template.
    • WUScan: Scans for missing and installed security patches and non-security patches.
