when I define wsus server for Patching menu, I wrote the server name and port, itís OK and connect.
Two step: Create and Install Certificate, i do it and itís success.
Three step: Create Group Policy (I used WSUS server) and I got this error message: ĄThe WSUS Group Policy could not be created.Ē

I try it two machines: Hyper-V Windows Server 2008 R2 and Hyper -V Windows Server 2012.

And Internet Explorer run as Administrator!

What's the problem, please help me.

Please excuse us to have replied with a delay to your inquiry. Should you still need assistance on the current thread, please consider visiting Secunia CSI FAQ for step-by-step instructions on how to create a GPO manually.

Under the section Technical - WSUS / GPO / Certificates / Miscellaneous you will find How do I export and install the certificates manually alt Import and create my own GPO? article which explains all steps.

Before creating a brand new GPO for the CSI, please check the Group Policy Objects container within the Group Policy Management Console if it already contains WSUS-CSI GPO entities. it's important to delete all GPOs created earlier before applying a brand new one.

After creating your GPO manually, please make sure to link it to the correct organization level in AD that covers all machines that would need installation of Secunia updates via WSUS/SCCM.
