Hi Guys,

 

I have an OS10.4 Server, bound to AD. I have generated a Certificate Signing Request from Server Admin. I have generated a Self Sign Web Certifcate from my Windows CA and using the Add Signed certificate Button in Server Admin attempted to complete the Certifacte process. It never works, I get error when writing -1 .

 

I have Googled this to death so I hope someone can show me just how easy this is. All I want to do is have my Windows users (who trust my Windows CA) connect to iChat and Web on my Mac Server and not get a certiftcate Warning. Not much to ask.

 

I know how inflexible Self signed certs are but for me its all I need so why buy a commerical cert, I just need to be able to get my Mac OS10.4 Server to work with my Windows RootCA.

 

Can anyone help?

 

Thanks

 

Bob

    Did you install your private CA's cert on your server?

     

    By default the server won't (and shouldn't) trust a certificate signed by an unknown CA. You can import the root's certificate into your X509Anchors file (via Keychain Access.app) and then you should be good.

    Hi, yes I understand this and I imported the Roor certificate into this keychain before I did anything else. I then in Server admin generate the CSR, go to the windows CA web access, generate a web cert using the csr from server admin and then when trying to import the .cer file I get the errors.
