The Management Servers node maintains all inventory and discovery data for specific systems in the Patch Manager environment. Each Management Server includes a defined collection of managed entities specified by their corresponding domain, workgroup, or WSUS server. 

When you select a Patch Manager server in the Management Servers node, the console displays the following tabs with information about the server in the lower-center pane.


You can access the Patch Manager Servers node from the navigation menu.

  1. Log in to Patch Manager as an administrator.
  2. Expand Patch Manager System Configuration > Patch Manager Servers and select Management Servers.
  3. In the Patch Manager Servers pane, select the WSUS server. 
    In this example, WSUS01 is the WSUS server.


This tab displays details about the server, such as its name, Patch Manager server roles, and management group.


Automation Server Monitoring

This tab lists all of the Automation role servers assigned to the selected Management Server.

Task Diagnostics

This tab displays details about the tasks currently running on the Automation role server. These details also appear on the Task Diagnostics tab of the Patch Manager Servers and Application Servers nodes, which contain only details for the selected server role

Management Server Settings
