Follow these guidelines to help establish the optimum software and hardware configuration for deploying Patch Manager in your environment.
For information about deploying Patch Manager in a distributed environment, see "Advanced Deployment Scenarios".
Install Patch Manager on its own server, using a remote SQL server. For evaluation purposes, the installer deploys a local SQL server on the Patch Manager server.
If you do not have a dedicated server for Patch Manager, install Patch Manager on the same server as a WSUS server. We do not recommend you co-locate these servers if you are installing Patch Manager with a local SQL server.
