  • If you are using IE8 then you will find the lock icon in the URL navigation bar itself a small Lock icon should be appearing, Clicking on will pull up a small message window having View Certificate link, clicking on will open up the certificate details, verify the name of the certificate matches your URL of PWA, verify the expiry date of certificate, validate the certificate domain

    if using earlier version of IE, you will find the same Lock icon in status bar of IE

    Alternatively you can log onto IIS and check for the certificate on clicking the site details, depends which IIS you are using, just check for security certificate associated with that site

    Hope this helps

  • Hi K.Gokulraj,

    The PWA is probably configured to use a secure channel (you need to access PWA using https). This requires a certificate. If something is wrong with the certificate, you get the error you mention. Possible reasons are:
    - Certificate has expired
    - Certificate domain name does not match the PWA domain
    - Certificate is not valid for the domain

    So you need to verify the website certificate status and settings.

    I hope this helps,
    Hans
