The WSUS Inventory task populates the SolarWinds Patch Manager reports. The task pulls the SolarWinds Patch Manager report information from your WSUS servers using the WSUS API. SolarWinds recommends that you schedule the task to run each day outside of your normal operating hours. You can also configure a one-time WSUS Inventory for evaluation or other purposes.

  1. Log in to the SolarWinds Patch Manager Admin Console as an administrator. 
  2. In the Patch Manager menu, expand Enterprise > Update Services and select your WSUS server.
  3. In the Actions pane, click WSUS Inventory.
  4. Select the task options in the WSUS Inventory Options window, and then click Save. 
  5. Set the Scheduled Time, Recurrence pattern, and Range of recurrence in the Schedule window. 
  6. Click OK.
