KNOWN ISSUE: The PMImport cab file is not downloading new versions when an alternate unc location is used
Last Updated February 24, 2010
If a non default location is being used for the PMImport and the location is a UNC patch the PMImport may not be downloaded if the 'Only download if modified' option is selected. The following informational message is logged.
Altiris.PatchManagementCore.Tasks.Server.PMResourceImportTask.ExecuteTask Description: ItemTask 'Adobe Patch Management Import' - http://www.solutionsam.com/imports/7_0/patch/adobe/pmimport.cab has not changed since the last download. It will NOT be downloaded
The data value used to determine if a new PMImport is available is not being correctly evaluated.
The current workarounds for this issue are:
Uncheck the Only Download if Modified option on the Microsoft Patch Management Import task.
Note: Because this will cause the full PMImport to be downloaded it is also recommended that the schedule be changed to something less aggressive. For example set the schedule to run weekly on Wednesday.
Open the Microsoft Patch Management Import task after each PMImport and delete the run history.
