Wildcard certificate

Hello Airheads,
I have a wildcard certificate for my domain. I am having difficulty getting this to work with my controller. I combined the private key, wildcard and root CA into a single pem file and uploaded it to the controller. The controller accepts the certificate. I turned the certificate on for the WebUI and my browsers all tell me the certificate is in invalid.

I called support about this. The gentlemen I spoke with spent and hour poking around without accomplishing anything.

Any help or guidance is much appreciated,

Question:

Are you using the wildcard certificate for 802.1x authentication or Captive Portal Authentication? Did you get this certificate from a certificate authority?

Re: Wildcard certificate

I would like to use the certificate for the Web management UI and captive portal.

The certificate was issued to us by DigiCert

Re: Wildcard certificate

A wildcats certificate will not work in those two scenarios. Quite frankly, wild card certificates have quite a few drawbacks, and in practice should not be used to to lack of proper application and client support.
