This settings tab only appears for Patch Manager servers in the Management server role. It appears in the Management Servers child node under Patch Manager System Configuration > Patch Manager Servers.

Note: The settings on this tab mimic the corresponding settings on the Application Server Settings tab. Management server settings always override settings on the Application role server.

Event Logging

Settings in this category control how the Management role server logs to the Windows Event Log on the Patch Manager server. Enable or disable the following settings to define what the Management role server logs.

  • Management Server Security Audit Failure Event Logging Enabled
  • Management Server Security Audit Success Event Logging Enabled
  • Management Server Error Event Logging Enabled
  • Management Server Information Event Logging Enabled
  • Management Server Warning Event Logging Enabled

Note: Settings in this category on the Automation Server Settings tab overwrite the corresponding settings on both the Application Server Settings and Management Server Settings tabs.

Application Server Communication Settings

Settings in this category control how the Management role server handles communication failures with remote systems.

Number of retries on communication failure

Specifies the number of times Patch Manager will attempt to communicate with a remote system if a task is unable to connect. Select a value from 0 to 10.

Retry delay on communications failure (in seconds)

Defines the retry interval handling communication failures. Specify the number of seconds Patch Manager should wait between retry attempts. Select a value from 0 to 60.

Management Server Job Pool Settings

Settings in this category control the number of concurrent jobs the Management role server allows.

Maximum Concurrent Jobs

Specifies the total number of jobs that can run at the same time across the Management role server. Each Application role server also has this setting to limit concurrent jobs across all Management role servers. Select a value from 4 to 16.
