The Microsoft error 2146762748 is referring to the OS's inability to verify the certificate used for communication.
- It's possible the remote schedule needs to be re-installed. You can accomplish this in View > Machines. Right-click on the machine and choose View Scheduled Tasks. Wait for it to refresh then choose Uninstall then Install.
- If this Server is disconnected from the internet then it's possible the root certificates and\or Certificate Revocation Lists (CRL) haven't been updated in a long time. These are normally updated through Windows Update checks. I've download 2 CRL's that we use for Protect, installing these on the target may help:
- Right Click on the file --> Install CRL
- Click Next
- Select Automatically select the certificate store based on the type of certificate
- Click Next
- Click Finish
- You should see The import was Successful
- You could also try switching over to the Microsoft Scheduler. Tools > Options > Scheduling set to Microsoft Scheduler.
Thank you first off for the reply back, so when try your 1st bullet point I get this initially then I cancel.
I then click on cancel and receive the following error which crashes the whole console rinse and repeat same thing.
I then went on to install your CRL's successfully then ran another install of one patch from the Shavlik console and it went back to being stuck in the "Scheduled" state I then opened up the STDeploy log and found this error:
WinTrustVerifier.cpp:270 Certificate verification failed with error: -2146762748
I then went over to the scheduler and see nothing in it.
I believe we have support with this product so I might just call in.
Resolved issue with support by exporting VeriSign certificates from a known working machine and importing them to the affected node.
Yep, that would have been next on my list, glad Support was able to point you in the right direction.
Thanks a lot for verifying the fix, it will be helpful for other customers.
