Probably my OCD but today I am getting a patch manager console reminder that version 2020.2.4.340 is available and I want to address it so it doesn't keep coming up.
When I open the reminder item I get another message box.
When we select yes to that SolarWinds portal opens in a web browser and I am able to select download next to patch manager. We patched our Orion server last week for HF2 so that is good so I am confused at what this reminder wants us to update. Since Patch Manager Orion web console is not on the wsus server with the Patch Manager Console I don't think that is it. And the newest option for patch manager mmc download available on the portal is 2020.2.1 HF2 with release date 25 Aug 2020. Can someone help me understand what update we need to install to stop this reminder from coming up for version 2020.2.4.340 of the patch manager console?
If it helps these are the installed Solarwinds products in the program list of our 2019 WSUS server that has the Patch manager console installed on it.
I am at the same version as you, but do not get any prompts to upgrade. Don't recall ever seeing any prompts that an upgrade was available. I did however get an emails about the Orion vulnerabilities and came across these release notes trying to validate that a standalone patch manager install was not vulnerable.
Its not clear to me if this is a different vulnerability or the same. Its confusing because it was published in the same timeframe. Regardless, I cannot find any download for this hotfix. We do not want to use the Orion installer as we do not use Orion.
I see a similar download list as the original poster. Does anyone know how to obtain this hotfix which looks to contain only 3 files?
I checked on Patch Manager again today and their is no longer a reminder. I went under actions to the reminders windows to double check and it now states "There are currently no reminders."
We are on patch manager console 2020.2.1.28 and patch manager server version 2020.2.1.282. I am the only one normally getting into patch manager and have not dismissed the reminder so not sure why the reminder disappeared.
