WebinarUpcoming Webinar: Know What’s Changed – with NEW Server Configuration Monitor

Change management in IT is critical. But, even with a good change management process, changes are too often not correctly tracked, if at all. The configuration of your servers and applications is a key factor in their performance, availability, and security. Many incidents can be tracked back to an authorized (and sometimes unauthorized) configuration change, whether to a system file, configuration file, or Windows® Registry entry. Join SolarWinds VP of product management Brandon Shopp to discover how the new SolarWinds® Server Configuration Monitor is designed to help you.

SolarWinds licenses Patch Manager according to its number of managed systems. These systems include all WSUS, SCCM (or ConfigMgr), and SolarWinds Patch Manager servers, as well as all managed client systems.

The Primary Application Server (PAS) installed on the SolarWinds Patch Manager server calculates the number of managed computers using two sources:

  • Enterprise > Managed Computers node
  • Administration and Reporting: > Task History node

You can access these nodes from the SolarWinds Patch Manager Admin Console.

The following table lists the available license tiers.

License Supported Nodes
PM250 250
PM500 500
PM1000 1,000
PM2000 2,000
PM4000 4,000
PM8000 8,000
PM14000 14,000
PM20000 20,000
PM30000 30,000
PM40000 40,000
PM60000 60,000

For example, your Windows domain has one server running Microsoft® Windows Server® 2012 with WSUS and SolarWinds Patch Manager. There are 1,500 Windows-based nodes in the domain. In this example, the PM2000 license meets your needs.
