Complete the following procedure to add the Patch Manager web console as a new module on an existing SolarWinds Orion web console.

To add the Patch Manager module to an Orion server:

  1. Download SolarWinds Patch Manager.exe from the SolarWinds Customer Portal.

Note: You cannot use the SolarWinds-Orion-PM-v2.0-WebOnly.exe installer on an existing Orion web console server. Use the web-only installer to install all of the Orion Platform components along with the Patch Manager web console module on a separate web server.

  1. Run the installer.

Note: The installer's initial verification steps may take several minutes to complete. At times during this process, the installer GUI may disappear.

  1. Click Next to start the installation.
  2. Accept the End User License Agreement (EULA), and then click Next.
  3. If the installer needs to update or install the Microsoft Visual C++ Secure Runtime, click Next to proceed.
  4. On the Select setup type screen, select Web Console Only, and then click Next.
  5. On the Patch Manager Web Console Setup window, click Next.

Note: SolarWinds recommends you create a current backup of your Orion database before adding or removing modules. Do not proceed with this installation until you have a current backup.

  1. Accept the End User License Agreement (EULA), and then click Next.
  2. On the Orion Install Selection screen, leave Express Install - Recommended selected, and then click Next.

Note: Patch Manager and the Orion platform use different levels of security for SQL authentication. If you are installing web console server on the Patch Manager server, SolarWinds recommends installing the Patch Manager web console server with its own instance of SQL Server Express. If this is not possible, you must have mixed mode authentication enabled on the SQL server instance to share the same SQL instance with Patch Manager and the Patch Manager Orion integration.

  1. Click Next to begin the installation.
  2. On the SolarWinds Configuration Wizard window, click Next twice to configure the Patch Manager web module.
  3. After the Configuration Wizard completes successfully, click Finish to exit the installer and launch the Orion web console.
