How to select only certain Software Updates from one bulletin to be downloaded and distributed when Creating Software Updates Policy page.

For example, only distribute KBXXXX.exe from bulletin MS18-XXX.


Failed to download one or more of the Software Updates due to some network/proxy restriction.


Patch Management Solution versions 7.5.x, 7.6.x and 8.x.x


As per the Patch Management product design:

If a bulletin has multiple Software Updates in it and all of them are applicable to the clients, when you create a Software Update Policy to download and distribute it, all those applicable Software Updates will be downloaded by the client. It is irrespective of whether or not you make a check-box when creating the Software Update Policy.

If you still do not want to distribute those necessary/applicable Software Updates to the clients, then follow the steps mentioned in below forum to remove the Software Updates from the Software Update Policy before it is turned ON.
