Patchlink vs Zenworks Patch Management

Like most you I quickly found out that ZPM was just a lite version of 
Patchlink. I then contacted them and after some review I can assure you 
all that Patchlink is better:

-better support
-more up to date product
and definately CHEAPER (not going to go in details on that, ask your 
Patchlink rep)

I really dont see any valide point at going with ZPM over Patchlink

Interesting.. How did you come to the conclusion that ZPM is a lite version?

Pricing:
If you are an existing Novell customer then the price is usually less expensive from Novell.
MLA, CLA, VLA, ALA discounts apply to the retail price- of $18.

The version of Patchlink that ships with the ZENworks 6.5 suite is the 
full version.  The exact same version that can currently be purchased 
from Patchlink directly.  Once installed, the customer must then purchase 
the subscription to extend the time and the number of devices covered.


Also general Discounts apply... and the Patchlink Server is included..

On the other side... it is your decision..

I had some questions about Patchlink, and had a nice conversation with one
of their customer support reps.  What I think that Phil is misunderstanding
is that Patchlink's current version is 6.0, which was just released within
the past couple of months.  Novell will be doing their own tailoring of the
6.0 product and certifying it for their needs prior to it being released as
a ZENworks product.  In this sense, he is correct that the version of
PatchLink that we get with ZENworks is not up to date.

Zenworks Patch Management/PatchLink 6.4
This weekend I updated out 6.3 system to the 6.4 software and everything seems to be working fine, except I can't find a package/vulnerabilities that shows the new agent (6.4.2.245) to be installed. Currently most of my agents are at 6.3.2.858. My Subscription Service History shows vulnerabilities/licenses/packages status as all complete and successful is True. I can install the new agent manually without problem. Anybody have any ideas what to try next? Pat, It appears that in the past few days you have not received a response to your posting.

Zenworks Patch management is it useful?
We have been trying to use this product and have come across the following problems and concerns. Perhaps this form could help us answer these questions: 1. We have a group which we would like to receive the MS critical patches when they come out. Thus providing the auto-update option available in Windows update to our group of computers. We have not found a way to do this in patch management. We only have the process of picking the patches individually and adding them to the baseline. Is there a way to automate this? 2.

Patches, patches, patches... #2
OK, this is advance warning that I'm about to be reposting a bunch of patches of mine which appear to have succumbed to Warnock's Dilemma. The first three should be uncontroversial: there's a documentation fix-up for core.ops, and new tests for strings and stacks. The last one is rather larger, and consists of a greatly expanded set of tests for PerlString's, plus a bunch of bug-fixes. I'd be grateful if Jeff or Dan could take a look at this, as I have the feeling that a lot of the scalar PMCs are going to need similar fixes. Simon ...

ZENworks Patch Management 6.3
We were using ZPM version 6.2.x for a while and had 400 clients registered with the server. Many of the agents were older versions because of compatibility issues with other software (we can't install MSXML 4SP2). Because of that, we have most clients installed with 6.0.0.58 agents. Two days ago I tried to upgrade the server to version 6.3 but didn't see the upgrade instructions (why isn't that part of the documentation?). I tried just using the download from the ZEN7 suite w/SP1 and the result was I had to start completely from scratch. It removed the old vers...
