Certificate error when accessing controller

I have imported a new server certificate (and used the DNS entry to the controller as the "common name" while issuing the CSR) into my controller but I still come across the certificate error in Internet Explorer. When I look into the details of the certificate, it says, "Issued to: securelogin.arubanetworks.com". I thought the common name I specified would change that to our DNS entry but apparently that hasn't happened. Any ideas on what I might be missing here?

Re: Certificate error when accessing controller

After you imported the certifictae to the controller, you should configure the controller to use the new certificate for webserver on the controller.

 

In GUI

Management > General > WebUI Management Authentication Method > server certificate (select your new certificate)

 

CLI:

 

(MC1-Sunnyvale-3600) (config)# web-server switch-cert <name of the cert>

 

The CA that issued the  new certificate should also be a trusted CA in the certificate store of the client in order to get rid of the error
