Patch Manager encrypts all communications between Patch Manager server(s) and console sessions using a 2048-bit security certificate. At a minimum, a single Patch Manager server has at least two certificates:

  • One for the certificate authority (CA), which is the PAS, and
  • One for each server installation, which includes the PAS

When Patch Manager revokes a certificate, it appends revoked to the beginning of the certificate name. This can happen when you replace a certificate or uninstall a Patch Manager server. In these cases, you may want to delete the revoked certificate(s).

To delete a Patch Manager certificate:

  1. In the left pane of the Patch Manager console, expand Patch Manager Server Configuration, and then select Security and User Management.
  2. In the center pane, click the Server Certificates tab.
  3. Select the certificate you want to delete.
  4. In the Actions pane (right), click Delete.
  5. On the confirmation prompt, click Yes.
