To all,

This is another in the long line of Novell trying to incorporate third =
party products and then finding the market does not want them.  Remember =
when they bundled McAfee with ZEN Works for additional cost.  That lasted =
about a year.....

When will Novell learn that they need to build these products....Novell is =
very skilled with building technical solutions and it would be interesting =
to see what they could do with a real patch management tool.  Taking a =
product that already exists is not any value add. My two cents. =20

BTW, for anyone on the patch management list server...It always seems that =
Patchlink is the most unreliable product for actually delivering the =
patches.

This is just my two cents.....I love the products that Novell develops and =
matures on their own...but they have NEVER been successful reselling =
others products.

Adam

This reminds of the extra cost for PXE imaging in Zen 3.x.

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 ...

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. That concerns us, a...

Patches, patches, patches...
To forestall potential incidents of Warnock's Dillemma... I'm about to apply a whole heap 'o patches to Parrot. (With appropriate [APPLIED] responses, I hope) If, at the end of the day, I have *not* applied or commented on a patch you've sent, it means I've Officially Missed It, so give another try. Sorry 'bout this. Too much mail in the mailbox, and going back in time is tricky, as it can miss subsequent discussions on patches 'n stuff. -- Dan --------------------------------------"it's like th...

Where are these patches at? I cannot seem to find any of them on Novell's website. Applying these patches could very well fix my issue with my server not being able to contact novell.patchlinksecure.net as well as the issue we are having regarding the Discovery Agent using vast amounts of client CPU...

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 ...

The hotpatch has resolved my Optiplex GX745 boot issue, however I would like to throw out some observations.

Does PatchLink alter Microsoft patches?
A number of people in our shop are concerned that patches installed via PatchLink are somehow causing computers to slow down. This happens particularly on a Dell Precision 690. If we install Windows XP SP2 with all patches coming directly from Windows Update, the system does not slow down. In this scenario, PatchLink is not installed on the system. But, if we use PatchLink to patch the same kind of computer starting with just Windows XP SP2, after patches, the system is noticeably slower. A long time ago, we noticed that on this system, if we used PatchLink's version of XP SP2...
