Question: How do I isolate Organization Views / Groups (OU's) on Patch Compliance Reports?

Answer: 

Review the following process:

  • AD Import creates Organizational Units (OU's)
  • Symantec Management Platform Console processes will pull these OU's into Organization Views (OV's) and Organizational Groups (OG's)
  • The Console > Management > Organization Views and Groups displays these listed OV's / OG's by domain

Work through the following process:

  • Open the Compliance Report; Console > Reports > All Reports > Software > Patch Management > Compliance
  • Select the 'Showing' link (populated by default with ‘Computer’)
  • Change that to the OV/OG that is desired
  • Leave the 'Filtered By' setting as default 'Windows Computers with Software Update Plug-in Installed' as that will isolate only within the targeted OV/OG

The report should now only list Windows Computers with Software Update Plug-in Installed that are only collectively in that OV/OG (OU).
