Patch for SCCM, powered by Shavlik

WSUS Server Tab

The WSUS Server tab is used to configure how the add-in will communicate with your WSUS Server. It is also used to define the certificate that will be used to digitally sign the content that is published to the WSUS server.

WSUS Server Information

Name: Confirm the name or IP address of your WSUS Server. This information will normally be detected and automatically populated.

Port: Confirm the port number used when making a connection to your WSUS Server. The default value for unsecured connections is either 80 or 8530. For secured connections you will typically use either 443 or 8531.

Use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to connect to this server: If your WSUS Server has been configured to use a secure connection, enable this check box. A secure connection is mandatory if you need to import a signing certificate. See Importing a Certificate for more information.

Test connection: If you want to test your ability to access the WSUS Server, click Test connection.

Code Signing Certificate Information

A code signing certificate is required in order to publish updates to the WSUS server. If you already have a signing certificate in place it will be shown in the Current Certificate area.

You can perform the following certificate tasks:

Export: Exports the current certificate from within Ivanti Patch for SCCM. For security, the certificate is exported without the private key. After exporting the certificate you will distribute it to your clients and to your infrastructure machines (e.g. other machines that run the Ivanti Patch for SCCM add-in, downstream WSUS servers, and Windows Update clients). This is necessary in order for the machines to receive locally published updates.

Import: Imports a code signing certificate that was created by a Certificate Authority (CA). A secure connection is required in order to import a certificate.

Create a self-signed certificate: Creates a code signing certificate for your enterprise. This process uses the services of WSUS to create the certificate.

For detailed information on exporting, importing, creating and renewing certificates, see Certificate Overview and the other certificate topics.
