Patch Manager Getting Started Home

Last Updated: March 9, 2017

SolarWinds Patch Manager uses Inventory tasks to pull census data from the WSUS servers and managed systems. This data is converted into information that displays in the SolarWinds Patch Manager Admin Console, Orion Web Console (for Orion integrations), and reports (such as a WSUS inventory report).

These reports are located in the Patch Manager Reporting menu.
