Exclude Specific third-party updates
« on: October 25, 2021, 07:42:10 AM »
Hello,

We've started using PatchMyPc tool for a few months now and we are in the process of crating a monthly update strategy. Among many chosen vendor updates we've selected also java RE to be downloaded as well.
We've created the ADR and 5 deployments (based on rings) and it's ready to be tested.
Now the question is if there is a way to exclude specific updates (in particular java) from a small group of computers, without the need of creating another ADR that will only be dedicated on downloading java updates and pushing them on different collections?
It would be more preferable to have one ADR that will cover different scenarios instead of creating many which will add complexity to our environment.
I would appreciate all the help you could provide.

Thank you

Yannis

Hey Giav

No the only way would be to create exclusions in your collections and potentially create a separate ADR as you need to tightly control application version of Java by the sounds of things.
