createDirectory failed when wsus uses ssl

Hi, I am connected to a wsus 6.3.9600 server. All OK until I configured the wsus server to use SSL. When I now try to publish I receive a createDirectory failed error. WPP is installed on the WSUS server, and is configured as below:

``` <WsusPackagePublisher>
<Server>
<Name>wsus.company.i</Name>
<IsLocal>True</IsLocal>
<Port>8531</Port>
<UseSSL>True</UseSSL>
<IgnoreCertErrors>False</IgnoreCertErrors>
<DeadLineDaysSpan>0</DeadLineDaysSpan>
<DeadLineHour>0</DeadLineHour>
<DeadLineMinute>0</DeadLineMinute>
<VisibleInWsusConsole>Never</VisibleInWsusConsole>
</Server>
</WsusPackagePublisher>

I have checked the share and ntfs permissions on \server\UpdateServicesPackages and \server\wsuscontent and all ok (no problem when wsus is not configured for ssl). The wsus server is using a company generated certificate for it's client ssl connection, and WPP is using a WPP self-signed certificate for the software packages. Both certificates are published in the correct stores.

If I revert the wsus server to non ssl, then all works ok, but non-ssl is not permitted in my organization. Any help greatly appreciated.

Many thanks```

Slightly similar issue, I can create the directory (even though it says 8530 and not 8531) I cannot create the directory on my replica server unless I drag the .cab file to the specific folder. Even then, I also cannot get my test comps to see any updates.

Did you have installed on your Replica the Certificate for your WSUS?

Hello,

using Server 2012r2 with WSUS installed and SSL configured - all Default WSUS running fine.

When I use the WUP to publish an Update I also receive the "createDirectory failed" error.

Does anybody use WUP with SSL successfully?

I already tried everything (local, remote etc...)

Many thanks for for anyone chiming in.
