    Does a template override the Install the patch(es) option?

    bobsully Rookie

      When I create an operation, select a Deployment Template (which includes a post reboot time) and also schedule an install time for the patches, does a template override the Install the patch(es) option?  I am trying to determine when these machines will actually reboot.  If it would be after installation in any circumstance or only when specified in the template.

          Hi bobsully,

           

          The time specified in the first screenshot is specifically when the execution of the deployment is to begin, where the time specified in the template is when to reboot after the execution of the deployment is finished, so they are two separate times.

           

          For example, if you set the "On the next occurrence of specified time" in your template to be 3:00am, then you set your "Execute deployment package" time to 2:30am (maybe 1 hour after your scan starts or something), the deployment would begin execution at 2:30am.  Then, if it was finished by 3:00am, it would reboot at that time.  If it was not finished until after 3:00am, it would reboot the next day at 3:00am, since that would then be the next occurrence.

           

          So, specifically, the "next occurrence" of a time is explicitly the next occurrence after the deployment task is completely finished.  Does that help?

           

          Thanks,

          Brian
