The Patch Manager System Configuration node allows you to configure the groups, servers, and settings in your Patch Manager deployment. 


Using this node, you can: 

  • Create a management group to manage the domains, workgroups, and WSUS servers in a specific location or group
  • Configure and manage the Application Server for load balancing, separate business units, or users at different locations.
  • Configure and manage the Management Server to store inventory data for management resources in secondary management groups. 
  • Set up and manage the security settings (such as credential rings and security roles) in your Patch Manager deployment.

Below is a description of each child node in the Patch Manager System Configuration node.
