Overview Information

After renewing your signing certificate, you must re-sign and then deploy or re-deploy your updates. How you do this depends on the current state of your updates.

Scenario 1: You have updates that were published with an old certificate but have not been deployed.

2.Perform a synchronization with WSUS.

Your updates are now ready to be deployed.

Scenario 2: You have updates that were published with an old certificate and they have been deployed.

In this scenario you need to modify each deployment package that contains a re-signed update. You must delete each update that was signed with the old certificate and replace each one with the newly signed updates.
