Complete the following procedure to install the Patch Manager web console server on its own web server. This can be the Patch Manager server or a dedicated web server. For the web console to function, it must be able to connect to a Patch Manager Application role server.

Note: This procedure installs several SolarWinds Orion components. For a detailed list of these components, see "SolarWinds Orion Web Console Components".

To install and configure the Patch Manager web console:

  1. If you want to install the web console server on the Patch Manager server, run the Patch Manager installer and select Install the Patch Manager Orion web interface.
  2. Click Next to start the installation wizard.
  3. Accept the End User License Agreement (EULA), and then click Next.
  4. Specify a custom installation folder, or accept the default.
  5. Click Next.
  6. Select the setup type. Select Express to install the Patch Manager web console with its own instance of SQL Server Express (recommended).

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.
  2. Click Next. After the installer finishes, it launches the SolarWinds Configuration Wizard.
  3. After the SolarWinds Configuration Wizard finishes, click Finish to launch the Patch Manager web console.
