Error Uploading Certificate: Cert public key did not match the private key in the CSR store

I cannot get a third party certificate to be installed on a controller.

 

I think I got the certificate right but I'm still having this error message : Error Uploading Certificate: Cert public key did not match the private key in the CSR store.

 

Since this wildcard certificate will be installed on several controllers/servers, our procedure requires to use a CSR generated by OpenSSL. Therefore, the CSR was not issued by the controller I'm testing this on.

 

I did open a case yesterday with the TAC but I'm wondering if someone else had to deal with that kind of problem before.

 

Do I need to remove the CSR and private key on each controller? I'm really doubtful but I'm open to try it if it is possible.

Colin,

No, I wasn't successful so far with that certificate. Otherwise, that would be too easy. :-)

Did you convert the key pair + CA certs into a PFX/p12 file?

I did not. I only added the private key and server cert to the chain then save the file.

I'll try right now.

I would honestly try to do another CSR on the controller and submit that to your CA.  You can export the certificate later and then import it to other controllers, if necessary.

Worked like a charm as soon as I integrated the whole chain into a PFX.

 

That was the first time that I attempted this. I'll be testing and documenting this over the next week for my team but, so far, the PFX file looks to be a lot simpler than other methods.

 

Thanks for the help.
