SolarWinds RMM: Service Release with PSA Update, Patch Management Engine and Backup Manager Agent Upgrades

We’re pleased to let you know that this week’s RMM service release is now available to customers in all territories. The latest update includes a Patch Management Engine upgrade (v1.1.8) and a Backup Manager update (v19.12). These two services automatically update on the endpoints, so your devices are already set to take advantage of the latest performance enhancements. We’ve also released an enhancement to PSA integrations to support concatenated device and site names.

Patch Management Engine v1.1.8

The patch engine will now ensure that your device is running the latest Servicing Stack Update (SSU) during patch detection. This helps to avoid the situation whereby an out-of-date Servicing Stack can impact patch installation.  To learn more about SSU’s, please see Microsoft’s documentation https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/deployment/update/servicing-stack-updates.

The v1.1.8 engine also has enhancements to the patch download, install and timeout logic, to better handle large updates while also making the whole update process more efficient. In addition we’ve done some general hardening of the patch engine to help performance.

Backup Manager v19.12

We’re pleased to confirm that the Backup & Recovery agent has updated to v19.12, the latest available Backup Manager version. The update includes improvements to performance and addresses a range of bug fixes, please see the release notes below for details.

PSA Integration Update

In the PSA integration, we’re continuing to roll out changes in response to partner feedback. In this release, we’ve added the ability to concatenate the Site and Device name on mapping. This configuration will work particularly well for partners who leverage the site-less feature.
