Solarwinds N-Central Patch Status v2

#1

Hi fellow LTS MSP’s!

This is a question for those of us that use Solarwinds N-Central for their client RMM and for their patch management.

We get the dreaded alert for “Patch Status v2” come up every few weeks and then must then manually deploy patches to fix it the status error, sometimes the system is fully patched but the error persists due to some kind of filtering that is or isn’t applied to patch deployment.

I know the system is sold as a “saving you time and making you more efficient” but in all honesty, we spend more time on the admin of the system than we spend fixing actual problems.

All our desktop and server patching is on full auto, we would rather patch and break than not patch.

Does anyone have any advice on their patching using Solarwinds? Was there any resource that you found really useful?

Thanks,
Gv
