Recognize and Honor OS changes for activated assets

Patch Management recognizes and honors the operating system upgrade on the already activated Windows, Linux, and Mac assets.

If the operating system of any activated assets is upgraded to a version Patch Management doesn't support, the scanning is automatically stopped, and the following warning message is shown until Patch Management supports the operating system version. 

Important: After Patch Management starts supporting the upgraded operating system version, the warning message is no longer shown, and scanning and patch deployment activities resume.

Important to Know!

If you create a deployment job for any such assets, the job is not sent to them. You can see the status "Not Applicable" and the warning message for such assets from the Job Progress page. You can view the reason by clicking the count under the Skipped column.
