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.



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




(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
