This program makes WSUS bend to it's will. I have never had a better chance to get proper reporting.

Pros: The scheduled reporting has taken us out of the dark ages and brought us up current to allow us to be able to accurately patch and report on our environment.

Cons: I have had a time or two with the check-ins not reporting accurately but that is to be expected with having a mid size environment with different nodes.

Pros: Patch Manager has been a critical part of our network management. We are able to keep all of our third party applications up to date, where we used to have to rely on our users to allow the updates to run. Patch Manager has also allowed us to remove Admin rights from our end users.

Cons: Patch Manager can be a bit difficult to use at first. We had to rely heavily on the administrator guide to get started. Make sure you can devote time to following the procedures in the manual.

Comments: We've had issues with Microsoft WSUS by itself. Overlaying Solar Winds Patch Manager onto our WSUS server has really helped with our server patching.
