If you view the software update reports under Reports in the Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS) 2003 Administrator Console, some reports display incorrect data. For example, reports such as the Software updates for a specific computer report display incorrect data if a software update that applies to an SMS client computer no longer applies. In this example, you install the software update on the SMS client computer so that the software update is no longer applicable.
When this symptom occurs, the status information for the software update is deleted for all client computers when the updated SMS client computer reports inventory.
This problem occurs if the software update status table incorrectly deletes rows from the PatchStatusSummary table in the SMS database. In this case, when specific rows in PatchStatusSummary table no longer apply to a single computer, the rows are deleted. Therefore, the rows in the PatchStatusSummary table have been deleted for all SMS client computers.
