Overview

The following error is received in the Patch Manager console:

 

Error: < Unable to decrypt password. Please reset the password for credential "domain\username". >

Environment

All Patch Manager versions

Cause 

This is because the ME and the MP Registry keys were deleted, most likely to change the service password.

Resolution

  1. Go into the Patch Manager Security and User Groups section at the bottom of the Patch Manager console.
  2. In the Credentials tab, right-click each credential and re-enter the passwords.
