    Deploying patch template package

    saltwater Rookie

      I'm trying to figure out how I can or if it's even possible to create a scan package to deploy to a dev environment and deploy to prod env a week after testing of the dev env.


      For example, I scan our dev environment on the following Monday of Microsoft Patch Tuesday. So, I scan Dev env. with our scan template and deploy it to group_dev1 on Monday and on Wednesday group_dev2. What I'd like to do is use the same missing patches it found on group_dev1 to deploy on group_dev1. And, eventually use the same original scan from group_dev1 to group_prod1 and on group_prod2. Is this prossible?


      From my understanding of Shavlik scan, the scan goes to fetch XML and determines what it needs to patch the server. How do I make sure that the same patches goes on the dev and prod environment? I noticed that sometimes the patches are not the same and sometimes causes an issue with trying to keep the dev similar to prod. I understand that dev and prod will sometime differ but I'd like to know if this is possible or not.
