Use the Server Publishing Verification Wizard to determine whether a WSUS server has a publishing certificate. If it does, the wizard also determines the status of the publishing certificate with respect to the other server resources associated with that WSUS server.

To complete the Server Publishing Verification Wizard:

  1. In the left pane of the Patch Manager console, expand Administration and Reporting, and then select Software Publishing.
  2. In the Actions pane (right), click Server Publishing Verification Wizard.
  3. In the PublishingWSUS Server menu, select a WSUS server.
  4. If the WSUS server does not have a publishing certificate, the wizard returns a dialog to indicate that. Click OK to proceed.
  5. If the WSUS server has a publishing certificate, the wizard returns a list of related server resources, indicating the status of the WSUS server's publishing certificate on each. Select a server resource to view its details in the bottom pane.
  6. Click Close to exit the wizard.

If a server requires any action based on the results you see in this wizard, complete the Server Publishing Setup Wizard to create and/or deploy publishing certificates as necessary. For additional information, see "Configuring Publishing Servers".
