Problems in deploying patches thro patch mgr

We have acquired the patches, but we are not able to deploy the same thro notify/radskman.
There seems to be no problems with parameters for radskman.
Please let me know if i have to do any modifications to the configuration.

Assigned within RCS. Policy server not yet installed.

When i run radskman command, I see the following error in nvdmr001.log, for all patches -
"! Patch not applicable - no vulnerability data found for PRIMARY.PATCHMGR.BULLETIN (bulletin number)".

The message implies that the client a-wasnâ t eligible for the patch, b-didn't need the patch, c-the application associated with the patch wasn't there.
What does the vulnerability report show?

Hi,

What Roy say is right. The Ideal ways of using Patch Mgr is to see the Compliance report first, Identify the patchs which are not applied & assign these patches to the that desktops...

I have tested on a Windows 2000 server box and it works fine.
But in Windows 2003 box, the problem still persists.

Re: Problems in deploying patches thro patch mgr

As Roy asked you already...what do the compliance reports show for the Win 2003 machine? Which bulletins is it vulnerable to? Do you have green checkmarks beside all of the bulletins for this machine? If so, then the patches aren't applied because the machine is already fully patched. If you have red X's beside any of the bulletins, which ones?

Can you post your client connect.log from the Win2003 machine?
