Patch Manager Getting Started Home

Last Updated: March 9, 2017

Generate a WSUS Inventory report to catalog the status of Windows ® upgrade packages installed on the managed systems. When the inventory is completed, generate a report to determine update packages that need to be installed and approved on each managed system.

Schedule the WSUS Inventory report to start at a certain time of the day and run each hour, day, week, or month, depending on your needs. After SolarWinds Patch Manager generates the report, you can:

  • View the report in Scheduled Tasks
  • Export the report to a different format
  • Generate a scheduled report
  • Email the report to a user each time Patch Manager generates the report

Inventory the WSUS server and managed systems before you generate a report. If you do not inventory the WSUS server or managed systems at least once a day, the reports will not contain the latest information about your deployment.
