Re: Server Certificate on Controller

Did you also install the root CA cert? You need the whole trust chain.
You'll see options in the drop down box on the cert upload screen.

Re: Server Certificate on Controller

Did you change the Web UI server cert under Configuration > Management > General?

[ Edited ]

That specific message means a mismatch in the name on the certifiate and the address you are using in the URL.  The common name of the certificate should match your DNS name for the controller.  For example.    CN=aruba-master.domain.com.    URL:  https://aruba-master.domain.com:4343

 

Can you confirm/compare the URL and the Common Name on the certificate (the Issued to: entry)?

 

You'll sometimes get one of the following:

The security certificate presented by this website was not issued by a trusted certificate authority.  = Trust Issue
The security certificate presented by this website was issued for a different website's address.  = Name mismatch

Re: Server Certificate on Controller

Thank you guys. It was my mistake, i was entering the ip address of the controller in the browser to login into it. when i used the DNS name, the error disappeared.

 

Thank you once again.
