Migrating CSM for WSUS to a new server

Existing server

1. Disable the service in WSUS integration in Service status section.

2. We recommend to use the existing self signed certificate. It is already shared to managed workstations in most of the cases. Export the certificate. This can be done in WSUS integration tab in Server certificate section. Choose export and save the certficate for the new server.

3. We recommend also export the existing CSM for WSUS settings. These settings are located in C:\ProgramData\Centero\WSUS.xml. Copy the XML-file for the new server.
