Use SetupHelper.exe from the command line of any additional Patch Manager server on which the standard setup wizards have failed. The default location for this program is:

%PROGRAMFILES%\SolarWinds\Patch Manager\Server\SetupHelper.exe

For onscreen instructions, run the program from the command line with the argument, /:

setuphelper /

To add a Patch Manager server to the environment and automatically register with the PAS (that is, obtain and install the required server certificates):

setuphelper /createmgmtgroup "Managed Enterprise" /description "The Managed Enterprise Management Group" /addserver <deviceid>

Note: The deviceID for the Patch Manager PAS can be found in the registry: HKLM\Software\EminentWare\Data Grid Server, in the value, DeviceID

To assign a server to a specific management group:

setuphelper /assignservertomgmtgroup <managementGroupID> addserver <deviceID>

To remove the local server from the environment:

setuphelper /unregisterserver

To reset the ACLs on a server:

setuphelper /secureserver /rootdirectory "C:\Program Files\EminentWare" /serviceaccountname <fullname of service account> /sqlinstance THISMACHINE\EMINENTWARE
