Ivanti Patch for Windows Servers
(Previously known as Shavlik Protect)
Ivanti Patch for Windows 9.3 Update 1
Ivanti has released Patch for Windows 9.3 Update 1. This release includes a new feature where virtual machines contained in vApps or resource pools will now be discovered when resolving a vCenter Server or an ESXi hypervisor. This release also resolves several minor issues reported by our customers.
The Ivanti Patch for Windows console must be installed on one of the following 64-bit operating systems: Windows 7, 8.1, 10, Server 2008 R2, 2012 R2, or Server 2016 (excluding Server Core and Nano Server). Patch for Windows requires access to a Microsoft SQL Server database (SQL Server 2008 (Full or Express Edition) or later). If you do not have a SQL Server database, the option to install SQL Server 2016 Express Edition will be provided during the installation process.
New and existing customers should download and install build 9.3.4510.
If you are currently running versions of Shavlik Protect you can upgrade directly to Ivanti Patch for Windows 9.3 Update 1 using the full installer.
