    Does the Scan Profile you used contain the Hot Fixes scanner?

    Then Scan Profile I used had it. I ran a get-hotfix on Powershell and id not find the KB in question. Did some searching and found this: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/systemcenter/en-US/93cc0731-5a99-4698-b1d4-8476b3140aa3/powershell-20-gethotfix-cmdlet-problem?forum=winserverpowershell 

    Is this what PDQ inventory is using?

    KB4012216 was superseded, that's why the scan isn't picking it up. The monthly Cumulative updates overwrite each other.

    Oh wait, you show that it's installed on that system. Hmm. I'll keep digging :)

    You were correct. get-hotfix only shows the latest KB that was superseded. The Windows Update UI shows them all. I just need to ensure that the latest KB is added to the query.

     

    Thanks

    I have an machine that is listing the hot fix by the full name not the KB number and doesn't include all of them such as the may monthly

    @Wyman Chong

    Ah, cool.

     

     

    @Trav A. Tonsfeldt

    Is it showing the full name in the Name column of the Hot Fixes page in Inventory?

    That's normal for non-OS patches. 

    Is this the machine that doesn't include the May monthly?

    @trav You might want to Connect to the system and in Powershell do a get-hotfix to see how many entries you get. PDQ will only get what it is given. I have noticed a few systems where the WindowsUpdate DB is not updated or corrupted or updates are not actually happening.
