If you are running Microsoft® Windows Server® 2008 R2 SP1 on your Patch Manager server, perform the following procedures:

  • Enable WMI and Remote Administration Inbound Rules on managed computers running Windows Firewall on Windows Server 2008. This provides Remote Procedure Call (RPC) connectivity to deploy the WMI provider. Windows Server 2008 blocks these firewall rules by default.
  • For workgroups hosted exclusively on Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2 resources, enable and start the Computer Browser Service and enable Network Discovery on at least one system in the workgroup. This system provides a master browser for the Managed Resource Enterprise Configuration Wizard.

See Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2008 R2 on the Microsoft website for details.
