Complete the following additional setup tasks if you plan to use or manage servers running Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 with Patch Manager:

  • To ensure Remote Procedure Call (RPC) connectivity to deploy the WMI Provider, enable the WMI and Remote Administration Inbound rules on managed computers running Windows Firewall on Windows Server 2008. Windows Server 2008 blocks these firewall rules by default.
  • If any workgroups are exclusively hosted on Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2 resources, enable and start the Computer Browser service and enable Network Discovery on at least one system in the workgroup. This system provides a Master Browser for the Managed Resource Enterprise Configuration Wizard.

For additional information about these tasks, see the Microsoft TechNet Library for Windows Server 2008,
