Table of contents

Updated July 9, 2018


You can provision a WSUS Server for publishing in the Patch Manager Administrator Console by expanding Administration and Reporting, selecting Software Publishing in the navigation pane, and then click Server Publishing Setup Wizard in the Actions pane.

When you run the wizard, click the WSUS Server drop-down menu, and select a WSUS server, the following error displays: 

Index is Outside the Bounds of the Array


  • All Patch Manager versions
  • WSUS


  1. Log into the WSUS server.
  2. Launch Windows Server Update Services.
    You should see Reset Server Node and you cannot connect to the WSUS server.
  3. Ensure that Windows Update KB3159706 is installed on the server. See the Microsoft TechNet website for details about this update.
    If the update is installed, see WSUS issues after applying Microsoft KB3159706 to resolve this issue.
