Configure the managed clients

You can provision the WSUS publishing certificate to all clients you want to manage by configuring clients using:

When you are finished, configure the clients to accept updates from the Patch Manager server.

Configuring clients using the Patch Manager Console requires WMI connections with the managed clients. If you chose not to allow Patch Manager to automatically deploy the SolarWinds WMI Providers to your managed clients, manually deploy the WMI Providers or use the Group Policy method to configure the clients. For additional information about WMI connections, see Managing Client WMI Connectivity.
