CA Initialize Error

Hi everybody,

would it be possible for anyone to help me with the Cert. Authority installation for the SSL (web Admin)? i can see the CA installed properly in the "Edit Certificate Trust List" but each time (after restarting the ACS service) i still get the error that says "Can't initialize HTTPS transport: server or certification authority certificate is not installed". This is when tryint to enable the https on the Access Policy section. What's is really going on with this guy???


Re: CA Initialize Error

I think recreating the server certificate will solve this issue.

The reason is that the CA certificate is not used to send / receive data. There is no private key assoicated with it.

It's used just to tell the client that you trust who create the certificate. You need to recreate a server certificate.

Re: CA Initialize Error


Thanks for the reply!

I have re-created and installed the MS server certificate several times hoping it will resolve the error message but it seems it would rather irritate me to death! :)

I have gone thru all the steps to install the CA in Cisco ACS and everything seems OK but until the last step to enable the SSL it gives me that IRRITATING ERROR MESSAGE!

Thanks for your help anyway! ;)
