Windows Server patch Management Procedure

Product Overview

Altiris® Patch Management Solution allows you to proactively manage patches and software updates by automating the collection, analysis, and delivery of patches across your enterprise.The solution can significantly help you decrease the costs involved in delivering patches throughout your enterprise and integrates with Altiris Recovery Solution for stable-state rollback.

Key Features

  • Provides a repository that includes information on each software bulletin, such as technical details, severity ratings, and number of updates
  • Automates the downloads from the vendor site prior to distribution without administrator intervention
  • Discovers detailed information on the OS and applications, and inventories installed updates
  • Provides control over batched installations, rebooting, and simplified selection of command line options


With so many patches, it’s difficult to distribute and verify that patches are actually installed. In a few easy steps, Patch Management Solution automatically creates policies to deploy all software updates for a given bulletin.The solution supports both the well-connected (on the LAN or WAN), or occasionally connected (dial-up) computer. Bandwidth throttling and checkpoint restart capabilities allow you to “drizzle” packages to LAN-based and remote and mobile users regardless of connectivity. After patches are delivered, desired-state policies run on an ongoing basis to ensure that a required patch remains installed.

As I've posted in my previous posts that I have a client that recently upgraded a few things to Apple. Including their server.
I'm comfortable with windows server just not Apple. Their IT gave us the admin password for their server but it seems thats not enough.
Server monitor says "CANNOT_LOAD_BUNDLE_ERR"
the Admin credentials I log on with don't seem to work for Workgroup Manager all the time. Meaning sometimes it lets me log in, some times it doesnt. When it does it doesn't let me make any changes to the workgroup.
Whats up?

Workgroup Manager

by YodaTech

You CAN rename from the desktop but the shared name may stay the original name. Shares can have a name that's different from the actual volume or folder name; for example, you can have a folder called "My Stuff" but have it shared under the name "AUGWELL DATA".
Launch the Workgroup Manager app, login to your server, click the SHARING button at the top, then the SHARE POINTS tab on the left side. Select the share you're trying to rename, click the PROTOCOLS tab on the right side, and you will see a field for a custom name under "Apple File Settings" and "Windows File Settings"

Sorta. It's a windowing system

by Science-O

That lets you install some kind of GUI (like Gnome or KDE). It lacks the widgets and function you normally associate with modern GUIs. What makes it interesting in a client/server model that lets the operating system open windows on different displays. So I can SSH from my home Mac into a UNIX machine at work, set my Mac as the display for my account, and have the machine in another physical location use my Mac's screen to draw its windows. Or vice-verse: I'm logged into Craiglist using a browser that is running on my home Linux box, but it draws the window on my work machine's screen. My personal email and browsing doesn't occur on my work machine

Look beyond APM to unified performance monitoring  — TechTarget
ORLANDO, Fla. -- The lack of interoperability among traditional performance monitoring tools means data centers must use -- and pay for -- multiple tools. But movement toward unified performance monitoring could change all that.
