PIX PDM Stops working after Certificate Install.

Unanswered Question

I installed certificates (CA cert + PIX Cert) on the PIX ver 6.3 PDM ver 3. Immediately after installing the certificates the PDM is not accesible. A Debug Crypto CA shows the message Crypto_CA: Certificate not found each time Https access to the PIX is performed. Performing a "Show ca Cert", i see the PIX has the CA Cert + Its Cert. In addition, deleting the installed Certs by removing the CA Identity brings back access to the PDM. Am i missing something?

many thanks,

After the installation of certificates make sure you have given the command "ca zeroize rsa" on PIX. If you are getting the error "Page cannot be displayed" on IE try using a different browser like Netscape Navigator 4.7.9 with a fitting java engine. This browser doesn't checks for the "webserver" field on the Cert. Newer Netscape versions will also fail.
