I need help with the Web Application Certificate

Greets,

The title says it all really. I need help with the Web Application Certificate.

I've followed the instructions from here:

https://www.novell.com/documentation/novell-filr-1-1/filr-1-1_admin/data/certificates.html#b13qz9rn

I can get as far as item 3.c

3. Getting Your Certificate Officially Signed

C. Select the self-signed certificate, then click File > Certification Request > Import CA Reply.


I can get the certificate in to the Filr appliance but from there I'm stuck.


Any help much appreciated.

ok when you have you self signed certificate and you requested an official certificate with the corresponding CSR then you just need to go back to the digital certificates console. To import the official certificate, select the self signed certificate, then click File > Certification Request > Import CA Reply. Then a new windows pops out to select the certificate from your trusted authority from your local hard disk. Find the file (.cer worked for me) and click ok. As soon as you do this in the digital certificates console the self signed certificate will change the information that now it is officially signed. Look at the second column and you should see the name of your trusted authority under "issue from"

I personally had a lot of issues across all platforms. Especially Firefox and Chrome for android. Needed to pack all the root cert, intermediate cert and signed cert into one file and import as CA reply. Not even sure if this is correct now. But at least it works.
