Server certificates

Patch Manager uses a 2048-bit security certificate to encrypt all communications between all Patch Manager servers and the console sessions. 

A single SolarWinds Patch Manager server includes at least two certificates:

  • Certificate installed on the Primary Application Server (PAS) for the certificate authority (CA)
  • Certificate for each server installation (which includes the PAS)

When Patch Manager revokes a certificate, it appends to the beginning of the certificate name. This process occurs when you replace a certificate or uninstall a Patch Manager server. In these cases, you can delete the revoked certificate.

Delete a Patch Manager certificate

  1. Log in to the Patch Manager Admin Console as an administrator.
  2. In the navigation pane, expand Patch Manager Server System Configuration and select Security and User Management.


  3. In the center pane, click the Server Certificates tab.


  4. Select the certificate you want to delete.
  5. In the Actions pane, click Delete.
  6. When prompted, click Yes.

    The certificate is deleted.
