Error when generating a software publishing certificate in Patch Manager

Overview

When you generate a software publishing certificate for a WSUS server, the following error message displays:
The provisioning process is complete. Failed to create the signing certificate. Access is denied.

Environment

  • Patch Manager with WSUS
  • Patch Manager is installed on the same server as your Certificate Authority (CA)

Resolution 

Install Patch Manager on a separate server from your CA. SolarWinds recommends that you install and configure your CA on its own server, independent of both WSUS and Patch Manager.

After Patch Manager is installed on a dedicated server, rerun the Server Publishing Setup Wizard to create the certificate.
