Hi,
there is a specific forum for ZENworks questions: https://forums.novell.com/forumdisplay.php/1795-ZCM-Patch-Management

Have you tried setting Requirement on the policy to exclude the "Specified Devices"?

Hi Thomas,

Thanks for the reply. I am new to Zenworks and not sure about the process.

I have now listed the specified device under Requirements with the following conditions "No" and am hoping this setting will bypass this device for the patch policy. Please advise if this is coorect, thanks again.

Regards,

Francis
