Using MVM 6.8
When running a Full Vulnerabilty scan (using default template) against a Windows Server A with administrator credentials do not get any "Hotfixes or Patches" reported
Under "Windows Assessment Module Vulnerabilities By Category Report" only get
However if I run the same Full Vulnerability scan (Server A) using the same credentials with only "Hotfixes and Patches" selected I get a list of missing "Hotfixes and Patches", which proves that the credentials are correct.
Running the same Full Vulnerability Scan (using default template) against another server B with the same administrator credentials get "Hotfixes and Patches" reported
Under the "Windows Assessment Module Vulnerabilities By Category Report" get
Patches and Hotfixes
Security Policy /Options
No Credentials Required
Is there any reason for this behaviour?

If you are using the same credentials there isn't a reason for this. I'd open up a service request so we can take a look at your log files and see what type of access you received to that target.
Thanks for your response.
With regards to the log files, can you give a pointer so that I may investigate this
Well what I would do is search for the word "credential" in the log file. You will be able to determine if the authentication was successful when you locate that section. There is more to it though than successful authentication. For instance someone with just user level access can authenticate but they would not have the file system or registry access that is needed. Once you locate the credential successful message if you have the proper access to the file system and registry you will not receive any more messages on the topic. If you don't have access though you will see a message.
