About Operating System Update Reports

The OS Update reports enable you to check for new updates and update your systems. You can get a general report, or test a system for available fixes.

To ensure that your managed systems are up-to-date, you must determine which updates (packages and patches) and actions to apply to your system. The OS update reports help you to determine the updates that are applicable to your systems and how many of the applicable updates are compliant or not compliant for the selected systems.

When you create a report, you select the criteria that are relevant to you, such as a list of hosts that have a specific patch or a list of hosts that do not have a specific patch.
