Updating the Knowledge Base

When you scan a device for missing patches, the results are based on the data of the Patch Knowledge Base . The Patch Knowledge Base consists of all information about patches like severity, download links, descriptions, and so on By default the Patch Manager checks if updates are available for the Patch Knowledge Base every day at 11:00 PM. If there is an update, it is immediately downloaded.

With a delay of 24 hours, the updated Patch Knowledge Base is sent to all devices administrated by the Patch Manager . Thereby new files are only downloaded once and centrally distributed throughout the network.

If required, you can configure the default settings to adapt them to your needs. For example, it might be necessary to modify the schedule of checking for updates or the delay between update and distribution to devices.

Additionally you can also manually update the Patch Knowledge Base. If you have an Internet connection, you can do so with one click. If your Patch Manager does not have an Internet connection, you must download the files first on another device, put them on the Patch Manager and update the Patch Knowledge Base with these files.
