Deployment Best Practices

Updated June 17th, 2016


Follow these guidelines to help establish the optimum software and hardware configuration for deploying Patch Manager in your environment.

For information about deploying Patch Manager in a distributed environment, see "Advanced Deployment Scenarios".

Best deployment practice

Install Patch Manager on its own server, using a remote SQL server. For evaluation purposes, the installer deploys a local SQL server on the Patch Manager server.

Single server deployment

If you do not have a dedicated server for Patch Manager, install Patch Manager on the same server as a WSUS server. We do not recommend you co-locate these servers if you are installing Patch Manager with a local SQL server.
