Configuring Update Services

Use the Third Party Updates Configuration Wizard to configure the Patch Manager server to synchronize with the SolarWinds third party update library.

Note: The evaluation version of Patch Manager includes access to a limited selection of third party updates. When you purchase a Patch Manager license, it includes complete access to all available catalogs.

To configure update services:

  1. In the tree view in the left pane of the application, select Administration and Reporting, and then select Software Publishing.

  2. Click Patch Manager Update Configuration Wizard from the Actions pane.

  3. Verify you meet the requirements listed on the first page of the wizard:

  • You can browse to 3pupcontent.solarwinds.com from the server.
  • If you use a proxy server to access the Internet from the Patch Manager server, you have the server name, port number, and user credentials for the proxy server.
  1. Click Next.

  2. If the Patch Manager server accesses the Internet using a proxy server, enter the required information.

  3. Click Next.

  4. Click Start Connecting.

  5. After the wizard scans for the available catalogs, click Next.

  6. Select the products you want to synchronize with the Patch Manager server.

  7. Click Next.

  8. Configure the synchronization and notification preferences.

  9. Click Finish.
