How to Scan for Third-Party Applications

To scan for machines missing the third-party applications supported by Shavlik Protect:

  1. From the main menu click New > Patch Scan Template.

The Patch Scan Template dialog appears.

  1. In the Name box, type a name for this custom scan (for example, Software Distribution Scan).

  1. On the Software Distribution tab, enable the Software distribution check box.

  1. (Optional) If you want to automatically deploy the applications to any machines that are missing the applications, enable the Deploy missing patches using check box and then select the desired deployment template.

  1. Click Save.

  2. Initiate a scan using this new scan template.

For example, you might click on the desired group in the Machine Group pane, select the new custom scan template in the Scan with box, and then click Begin Scan.

  1. When the scan is complete, if you elected not to automatically deploy the applications, see Deploying Third-Party Applications for information on installing the applications.
