3rd Party patch management - Part 5

Hi All,

this is the part 5 where we will see how to install a remote console and integrate with SCCM 2012 SP1. I'll be using the SCCM Site Server itself instead of a remote SCCM Console.

the 1st step, execute the patch manager setup

on the welcome screen, click next

accept the license agrrement and click next

as i have the wsus installed on the server, the following message will appear. click ok

on the select setup type, select custom and click next

select console install and make sure the Include SCCM 2012 Integration is selected. click next

on ready to setup your system, click next

once the installation is done, uncheck run solarwinds patch manager and click finish

now, open the sccm 2012 console and navigate to software library. you'll see a new node called 3rd party updates.

once you click on 3rd party updates, the connect to application server screen will appear. add the correct information (in my case srv0010) and click resolve and after that connect

on product features selection, select system center configuration manager extension pack and click continue

the sccm console will be configured

expand updates overview, catalogs to see all the catalogs we're using

on synchronizations, you can see all the synchronizations and results
