The deployment template can be setup to send a report. There are three different deployment reports that can get sent:
- Deployment Notification: This report is sent after the deployment is successfully scheduled. It identifies the patches that will be deployed and the date and time of the pending installation.
- Deployment Status by Deployment: This report is sent after the deployment is complete and verified or after the maximum time specified on the General tab. The report provides general status information about the deployment.
- Deployment Status by Machine: This report is sent after the deployment is complete and verified or after the maximum time specified on the General tab. The report identifies each machine included in the deployment and indicates if the patch deployment on each machine was successful or unsuccessful.
This is setup with the Email tab of the Deployment Template. Once you have accessed this tab, you will want to specify which reports should be automatically sent and to whom they should be sent: Select a report in the Available Reports list. In the Report Recipients list,to the right, select the groups and/or individuals you want to e-mail the report to. You can select all and clear all recipient check boxes using the Check All and Uncheck All buttons, respectively. The selections you make are added as report recipients in the Available Reports list. Repeat this process for each report you want to be automatically sent. When finished, click Save.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any further questions.
