IAP default auth server certificate replacement error

[ Edited ]


Dear Community. I am trying to replace the default auth server certificate on an IAP 225 with a trusted go daddy certificate.

When i upload the certificate the IAP throws an error:

"cert_upload_cannot_find_private_ke_txt"

How shoud the private key be presented to the AP as part of this process, the AP does not does not ask for the private key during upload, should it be in a text file and named appropriately?

There are no similar issues reported on the community and no aruba documentataion which refers to the private key during upload.

I attach a screenshot of my attempt to upload the certificate.

Any help appreciated.

Export your certificate and private key in PFX format and them upload to the VC.

You would need to merge them into a PFX/P12 using openssl.

Hi Tim, Having tried to merge the certificate and key using open SSL I now get the message "the file .....pfx" was not uploaded because it is not a properly formatted certificate file.

Re: IAP default auth server certificate replacement error

Hi Tim, having merged the crt and privete key using open ssl I have now generated a pxf file as suggested.

I am able to import this certificate into my windows 10 personal certificate store no problem, and it shows it has the corresponding private key.

 

However, when I attempt to upload to the IAP to replace the auth server certificate I am presented with the follwing messgage "the file authserver.pfx was not uploaded because it is not a properly formatted certificate file". Any help appreciated.

Please look at the post here and see if it applies to you: http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Controller-less-WLANs/How-to-Create-a-Certificate-for-Instant-Captive-Portal-using/ta-p/277025

 

Start with "After you do that certificate authority will either allow you to download or will email you two files:"
