Recently I have installed new Altiris 8 (IT management suite version 8) on one of our servers. I have installed it mainly for patching the servers in our environment. I have created Windows security updates patch policies and then pushed the Symantec Management Agent (SMA) on many of the client systems.
Then I discovered that the newly installed clients systems are pushed with the patches. Upon reviewing the patch policy I find “Windows Computers with Software Update Plug-in Installed Target” was automatically set on all policies.
I have deleted this from all policies to resolve this.
To delete this from a policy,
- Click the policy
- Select “Windows Computers with Software Update Plug-in Installed Target”
- Click the delete icon
- Save the changes
- If you have multiple policies like I have shown below, you can click each policy and do the above 1 -4 steps.
