Patch Manager Getting Started Home

Last Updated: March 9, 2017

If you provisioned an additional Automation Server in the deployment, create routing rules to route managed tasks through the server to the resource.

SolarWinds Patch Manager uses Automation Server routing rules to manage which tasks are assigned to an Automation Server role. Routing rules assign tasks to a default pool that routes managed tasks to the next available SolarWinds Patch Manager server in the pool when the assigned server is not available. If you created additional Automation Server roles in the deployment, create routing rules to route managed tasks through the server to the resource.

See the SolarWinds Patch Manager Administrator Guide for details about scenarios that require additional Automation Server roles.

  1. Log in to the SolarWinds Patch Manager Admin Console as an administrator.
  2. Expand Patch Manager System Configuration > Management Groups.
  3. Select Managed Enterprise.
  4. Click the Automation Server Routing Rules tab.
  5. Select a routing rule action in the Actions column.

    Rule Type Description
    Domain/Workgroup Routes managed computer tasks to a WSUS server in a domain or workgroup.
    Organizational Unit Routes managed computer tasks to a WSUS server in an organizational unit.
    Subnet Routes managed computer tasks to a WSUS server in another subnet.
    WSUS Server Routes managed computer tasks to a WSUS server.
    Computer Routes managed computer tasks to a specific managed computer.
  6. Complete the Rule wizard.

  7. When prompted, select the Absolute Rule check box to ensure the tasks route only through the Automation Server. Otherwise, leave this check box clear.
  8. Click OK.

    The routing rule is configured.
