I have made a list of stuff that I’ve noticed while installing, configuring and administering SolarWinds Patch Manager 1.72. I grouped it into things that seem like bugs and things that are more like requests. I hope that you find this feedback useful
Wake on LAN
Computer Selection Rule Management
+1 (wow, excellent list)
Additionally, here are 2 more items:
(opened a case (#343231) before being directed here)
Under the Software Publishing section - Package Selection -
There is a spelling error (hopefully, not grammar) in the default packageboot.xml file.
Line 14: " NOTE: comments are show for the ... "
Should be "comments are shown"
Additionally, there is a screenshot in the Local Publishing Administrator Guide of that packageboot.xml file with the error on page 22.
Similar to the actual WSUS console, the ability to delete/remove a computer and/or change group membership via a right click.
I have also caused the application to hang repeatedly by attempting to copy selected text.
In the Managed computers node, select the Computer Details tab of a machine, highlight a block of text and press Ctrl+C. The mmc will often hang and must be forcefully terminated.
I can't reproduce this reliably, but it seems to happen about one time in 10.
Feature Request - Remotely Enable Remote Desktop
With the link to Remote Desktop on the Action/Computer Summary Sidebar, it would be helpful to be able to enable/disable it remotely.
Either that or remove the link to Remote Desktop entirely.
