SUS certificate invalid


just set up a SUS, when i tried to update from applestore, it gave me "The certificate for this server is invalid. You might be connecting to a server that is pretending to be “” which could put your confidential information at risk"

what i am trying to do it, push the configuration file to all the client and let them update from the SUS. i'm not willing to run cli on client mac one by one.

i have read some article about changing default url on branch, but i don't know how.

I'm currently using Yosemite 10.10.3 and with SUS VM installed.
the default URL is

how can i make this work?

@Dalmatian So the ASUS is running on a 10.10.x Mac?

That Catalog URL looks incorrect & does the server have a valid SSL certificate?

Perhaps try wit the URL using the servers FQDN & URL more like:


You should be able to test things by entering the URL into a browser, no SSL error & you should be good.

The original poster mentions "SUS VM installed" and the URL is evocative of a reposado "branch" URL, so I suspect he or she is using NetSUS, maybe? Though it is perplexing why one might run the NetSUS VM on an OS X server; if you were running OS X Server and wanted the additional capabilities of Reposado you could just switch off Apple's SUS service and install Reposado. No need for the overhead of running a VM in VirtualBox or Fusion, and certainly no advantage to using the NetSUS NetBoot/BSDP implementation over Apple's.

So it seems we might need additional detail...

But yes, it appears that the OP is using an https:// URL with an invalid or missing server certificate.
