ACE - Error: Called API encountered error

Hello All,

I was trying to add a ssl-proxy server to a policy map when I had this error message "Error: Called API encountered error".

I'm running version A2(1.4a).

did anyone encounter the same issue?

Re: ACE - Error: Called API encountered error

The ACE uses an SSL proxy service in a Layer 7 policy map to load balance outbound SSL initiation requests to SSL servers. The ACE acts as an SSL client sending an encrypted request to an SSL server. For more information about SSL initiation, see the Cisco Application Control Engine Module SSL Configuration Guide.

To specify an SSL proxy service in a policy map, use the ssl-proxy command in policy map load-balancing class configuration mode. The syntax of this command is as follows:

ssl-proxy client name

The name argument is the identifier of an existing SSL proxy service. Enter an unquoted text string with no spaces and a maximum of 64 alphanumeric characters.

For example, enter:

host1/Admin(config-pmap-lb-c)# ssl-proxy client PROXY_SERVICE1

To remove the SSL proxy service from the policy map, enter:

host1/Admin(config-pmap-lb-c)# no ssl-proxy client PROXY_SERVICE1

Re: ACE - Error: Called API encountered error

I fixed it so i'm posting the solution:

The cert issued by the windows admin was not a "web server" certificate.

I deleted the old cert and replaced it by the new cert with the "web server" format and the error disapeared.
