    Using Group Policy to Install the WSUS Signing Certificate for 3rd Party Updates

    SolarWinds Community Team

      Most of the time, folks opt to use the Client Certificate Management task or Client Provisioning Wizard in the EminentWare product to deploy the WSUS signing certificate on all of the client machine.  This of course requires that the EminentWare WMI provider is already installed.

      As an alternate, you can also use Group Policy to install those certificates.  Here are some helpful links from Microsoft:

      We have a number of customers that have successfully deployed the certificates this way.
