Intel Active Management Technology (ATM) enables IT managers to discover, repair, and help protect networked computing assets. Intel vPro is the management platform built into Intel processors and other hardware that allows companies to manage their desktops and laptops out-of-band (OOB). That means the computers can be managed no matter if the computer in on or off, and even if the operating system has failed or there ...more »
With the advent of Mac agent v3 and the unification of all MSP features under a single pane of glass, I was hoping that the Client Executive Summary report would get an upgrade. Currently, Macs do not report if the managed patch task is installed/scheduled, nor if it has run recently (or if devices are fully up-to-date). This makes the Client report for Mac environments almost effectively useless, since the numbers are ...more »
N-central patching should wake systems for detection, pre-download, and/or reboot windows
Patch Management - Installation Schedule Upgrade is big setback Recently, Patch Mangaement Schedule has been re-vamped to deploy patches on a global schedule. Deploying patches to multiple clients on their schedule is a key aspect of Customer Service. Setting up a single Patch Management across all clients is not how to do business; although it is simpler. Ideally, Patch Management Schedule should be customized for each ...more »
Solarwinds case #01111236 With the addition of Patch Status v2 I have discovered lots of patches that were never automatically approved by automatic approval rules. Some are very important such as update rollups. Support explained it is because the Product Field is blank as this is what Microsoft's Windows Update agent is providing. WSUS has no problem handling these things, and N-able should be able to handle it ...more »
It would be very helpful if a machine missed the normal scheduled patch installation window we would have the option to patch the next time the agent came online. Something similar is available in the settings for 'next boot' however if the machine is simply hibernating or in a low power state it will not trigger this event.
It would be great if we can actively view status of patch deployments. As it stands you create a schedule but have no ability to view it's current progress. I'd like to be able to view which updates are still being installed, which ones have finished, if any are currently hung. Their is no way for me to tell if or when patch deployment has finished, all I can do is cross my fingers and wait out the scheduled window, Reboot ...more »
For bigger MSP organisations which easily can have 100-200+ technicians in the RMM system the Settings > Users > User Accounts dialog becomes really hard to navigate. There is the possibility to sort on different columns but a simple search box where you could enter parts of a name and get an instant filter/search result below would be very helpful.

I would like to see the features similar to those that are available in ConnectWise available in SolarWinds RMM, such as Microsoft Update Policies. Microsoft®️ Update Policies allow you to define the patch installation settings for Microsoft updates. A single Microsoft Update Policy can be applied to one or more patching groups. You can define pre and post install scripts as well as optional settings such as daytime ...more »
Not sure if this has been previously posted but it's similar to something I have previously requested for the same reasoning. I think it would be a nice touch to Patch Management if you could schedule the windows to run after a previous maintenance window. So, for instance, if the pre-download takes 1.5 hours, it will start the installation as soon as the pre-download is done. Or, failing that, it just starts it after ...more »
