Patch Manager licensing

SolarWinds licenses Patch Manager based on the number of managed computers. These computers include:

  • Microsoft® Windows Server® Update Services (WSUS)
  • Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM)
  • Patch Manager servers (including the Primary Application Server)
  • Managed clients

The Primary Application Server (PAS) calculates the number of managed computers using the following sources located in the Patch Manage Admin Console navigation menu:

  • Enterprise > Managed Computers node
  • Administration and Reporting > Task History node

If you discover that you exceeded your product license, see License count exceeded error in Patch Manager for steps to resolve the issue.
