Extra.DAT Question

We rolled out to our entire organization the Extra.DAT that was released yesterday.  I have approximately 5-10% of our workstations that are reporting to ePO that the Extra.DAT is not installed, yet when I check their agent log the install was succesfully completed.  My thought is that this is just a reporting issue and not something to be worried about.  Is there a way to show Extra.DAT adoption on a dashboard instead of viewing the system tree and adding the Extra.DAT column?  Also, at what point do the signatures in the Extra.DAT get rolled into the standard dat file update?  Basically...when can I stop worrying about the machines that don't show the Extra.DAT because I know that they've got the latest dat file that covers what the Extra.DAT was inteded to cover?

Thanks for your help!

Re: Extra.DAT Question

Sounds like a product enhansement request is in order.   It will add to the list of those already complaining about this.
