Complete the following procedure to install the Patch Manager Web Console server on its own web server. This server can be the Patch Manager server or a dedicated web server. The Web Console must be able to connect to a Patch Manager Application role server for the Web Console to function properly. 

This procedure installs several SolarWinds Orion components. See SolarWinds Orion Web Console Components for a detailed list of these components. 

  1. Select an installation type.

    To install the Web Console server on a Patch Manager server, run the Patch Manager installer and select Install the Patch Manager Orion Web Interface.

    To install the Web Console on a dedicated web server, download the Patch Manager full package (with SQL) from the SolarWinds Customer Portal and run the installer.

  2. Click Next to start the Installation Wizard.
  3. Accept the End User License Agreement (EULA), and then click Next.
  4. Specify a custom installation folder or accept the default.
  5. Click Next.
  6. Select the setup type.
    Select Express to install the Patch Manager web console with its own instance of SQL Server Express (recommended).

    Patch Manager and the Orion platform use different levels of security for SQL authentication. If you are installing the Web Console on the Patch Manager server, SolarWinds recommends installing the Console with its own instance of SQL Server Express. Otherwise, you must enable mixed mode authentication on the SQL server instance to share the same SQL instance with Patch Manager and the Patch Manager Orion integration.

  7. Complete the Wizard.
    When the installation is complete, the SolarWinds Configuration Wizard starts.  
  8. Complete the Wizard, and then click Finish to launch the Patch Manager Web Console.
