Gotchas

This section includes gotchas for each product version that may impact your upgrade.

  • During the upgrade, make sure to upgrade one version at a time on each Patch Manager server.
  • If you are upgrading from an End of Life product version, consider installing the latest Patch Manager software instead of performing an upgrade, saving, or migrating your data. SolarWinds Support can provide the best advice for these upgrade scenarios.
  • If you are migrating your Patch Manager database to a remote Microsoft SQL Server computer, be sure that the computer hosting Patch Manager meets the necessary requirements.
  • If you have more than 200 trusted root certificates, you may not be able to upgrade Patch Manager due to a limitation in the Microsoft Remote Procedure Call (RPC) implementation. Contact Technical Support for assistance.
