You can install a Patch Manager evaluation with an evaluation period. This installation is a full product version with a 30-day license. After the evaluation period, you can convert your evaluation license to a production license by activating the Patch Manager license.
You can run the evaluation using an SQL Server instance or SQL Server Express, which you can download and install on the Patch Manager server or a separate server.
To continue with a full product license, contact SolarWinds Sales.
