Complete the following procedure to update your installation of Patch Manager. If you have multiple consoles or servers, you will need to complete the upgrade procedure on each component.

Note: Due to a limitation of Microsoft's RPC implementation, you may not be able to upgrade Patch Manager if you have more than 200 trusted root certificates.
