Whenever you publish an update to your main upstream server, it is not replicating to your downstream servers.


  • All Patch Manager versions
  • All WSUS versions


In most cases, this is because of the trust relationship of the package.


Verify that the WSUS Self-Signed Certificate is installed on the downstream server in the Trusted Root CA and Trusted Publishers. If not, complete these steps:

  1. Log into your WSUS server.
  2. Launch a new mmc.exe.
  3. Go to File > Add/Remove Snap-in... and add the Certificates snap-in for the Computer account on the local machine.
  4. Go to the WSUS server and export the Self-Signed Certificate .
    Note: This is the certificate you want to Install in the Trusted Root CA and Trusted Publishers on the downstream server.
  5. ** Please note that failures might also be from duplicate WSUS certificates in the same store. Multiple certificates are fine but duplicates cancel eachother out, if this is the case you can delete any of the duplicate's. **
