SolarWinds Platform integration architecture

The following illustration describes how the SolarWinds Platform server collects data from the Patch Manager server and database so it displays in the Patch Manager Web Console.

You can use SQL Server Configuration Manager to enable the Named Pipes and TCP/IP protocols for the SQL Server network configuration. Web Reports require these protocols enabled on the SQL Server instance where the EminentWare database is located. For added security, configure a Windows firewall for this port. See the SQL Server Configuration Manager documentation on the Microsoft Docs website for instructions.
