The Patch Manager server file system consists of four sub-folders stored in the Patch Manager installation folder:

  • Console
  • Installers
  • Server
  • WMI Providers

The default installation folder is %PROGRAMFILES%\SolarWinds\Patch Manager.

The following sub-directories in the Server directory contain useful files for maintaining the Patch Manager server. The Server root folder root contains the log files. These files are in addition to the EminentWare event log Patch Manager maintains on the host operating system.

Subfolder Description
archives Contains XML files for Task History items that Patch Manager has automatically purged from the Patch Manager.
certs Contains a CER file for each certificate created by the PAS.
data Contains operational data for the Patch Manager server, including task definitions.
database Contains the SQL script files used to initialize the Patch Manager database. If Patch Manager was installed with a local instance of SQL Server Express, this folder also contains the SQL Server MDF and LDF files that comprise the database.
exports The default storage location for all task results and scheduled report exports.
packages Contains the WMI redistributable, the WMI provider installer, and all content related to locally published packages.
scheduled Contains a repository of work files Patch Manager uses to execute scheduled tasks.
templates Contains all configuration templates used by the server-resident console sessions. On remote consoles, the templates are stored in %AppData%\Local\SolarWinds\Templates.
