Greetings to all,


Server app -> Managing SSL Certificate


I'm trying to generate a self-signed certificate. No success. At the end of the process, I get the following error

"Unknown Error=-2147409850".


Can someone help me


Thank you from Switzerland

    I got this same error number when trying to request a developer certificate from Xcode and Keychan access.


    To solve this I enabled the root user account in OS X and then logged in as the root user. Then I tried again Xcode with no problems this time. I was able to save backups of the certificates so I could use them with my usual user account.


    Maybe just creating another user account and logging in with it could have worked as well.
