Whats the correct way to create a certificate? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have read through various instructions and each seems to be different. We get the following error:
    MCU Type: applicationsharing
    URL: https://(poolname):444/LiveServer/MCUFactory/
    HTTP Connectivity Error : ConnectFailure
    HTTP Connectivity Error : Ensure that the certificate of the local server and remote server are both
    valid, have not expired, and contain valid subject name. In addition, ensure that the certificate chain
    of both Server(s) are valid. Ensure that the certificate chain of the local server is installed
    on the remote server and vice-versa. The most up-to date certificate chain that was used to issue
    the server certificate must be present.

    We created the cert using the follwing:


    subject name:

    subject alternative name:

    Any ideas?

  • Is this a certificate for an Enterprise Edition internal Front-End server?  What roles are on this server (consolidated or explanded)?  Is the certificate from an internal Enterprise CA or a public third-party trusted CA?

  • Hi Jeff - thanks for your response.

    All sorted now - we reconfigured our certificate and Bobs your uncle!

    Thanks again :)
