Manage the publishing servers

Use the Server Publishing Setup Wizard to view the current WSUS certificate and create a self-signed certificate, or use an existing certificate to enable custom package publishing. If the certificate is installed on the server, the wizard determines the publishing certificate status with server resources associated with that WSUS server.

  1. In the navigation menu, expand Administration and Reporting and select Software Publishing.

  2. In the Actions pane, click Server Publishing Setup Wizard.
  3. In the Configure dialog box, click the WSUS Server drop-down menu and select a WSUS server.

    If the WSUS server does not have a publishing certificate, the Configure box generates an error message.

    If the WSUS server has a publishing certificate, the Configure dialog box displays the certificate information.

  4. Select whether to create a self-signed certificate or distribute the existing WSUS signing certificate to the required servers.
  5. Click Next.
  6. Complete the Server Publishing Setup Wizard to create or deploy publishing certificates as required.
