Our old trusted certificate expired, and I installed a new one on the machine running Secunia. I deleted the expired certificate in our group policy, both in "Trusted Root Certificate Authority" and "Trusted Publishers". When I went to connect, it said the GPO wasn't installed, so I went to create and install one in the wizard. I get a message saying "Ths CSI WSUS Group Policy is correctly configured, but not linked to any domain/organizational unit. How do I connect it? Barring that, how do I create the GPO manually? The documentation is sadly lacking in how to fix stuff.

Our Secunia CSI 7.x Technical User Gide includes information on how to create Group Policy manually. You also have the option to seek technical support assistance from our support team by sending an email to, where a product specialist will engage with you.

Pages 46 and 47 of the manual list the steps to create and configure GPO manually.

As an additional note, if you are using WSUS to deploy patches, then please follow our manual and after you perform step 7, please also take the following additional actions to finalize the setup correctly:

1. Find the setting Specify intranet Microsoft update service location and then double-click on it
2. Enable this setting
3. Insert the local intranet FQDN address of your WSUS server in both of the fields avaialble

For example: If your server is named WSUS and it accepts client connections on port 80, then the correct values to add would be "http://wsus:80".

To check if this is indeed the correct values to add - open any browser on the machine and type in the address in the URL address field, then press Enter - you shall see the IIS6 or IIS7 Webserver logo which would mean that this is indeed the correct address you need to add.

Kind regards / Stay Secure
