DVA SSL enabling is not functioning

Jump to solution

Trying to bring up GW Web on GW 18.3 on OES2018.  Server is an all-in-one for my small company - with Domain, PO, previously WebAccess and now GW Web all on the same box that has been upgraded for many years from earlier versions. 

Several things are working, but a couple are not.  One of them is enabling SSL on the DVA.  I have tried following @ 's terrifically detailed article on this in Open Horizons magazine a couple times but the net effect the POA Web Console | Configuration | Document Viewer Agent shows the DVA is configured for SSL but offline.  If I browse to port 8301, I am challenged in several browsers with the response SSL_ERROR_RX_RECORD_TOO_LONG  in Firefox and similar in Chrome, Edge.

I have also tried pointing the container.dva entries at the LetsEncrypt public cert that the GW Web Docker is happy to use but with no luck.  Have also tried the self signed certs that the POA uses also without success. 

Any thoughts on what I am doing wrong would be appreciated.

If you are able to log a service request, please do.

There could be a learning for everyone in this.

Thanks

I assume Peter, that rcgrpwise status shows that gwdva is up and running, right?

Copying the certifcates to a suitable location including conversion to pem will be the solution for you.

Thank you.  I spent many hours in a session with @bworkman yesterday trying to resolve the other problem I am having which is that we can't log in to GW Web if the GW user is authenticating to Edirectory.  An "dissociated" user can login in - we created one and he logged in with it from his house. All of our "Associated" users however, including me, are generating DSTrace error of -5875 when we attempt to use GW Web.  This despite the fact that all of our GW desktop clients authenticate to the tree, GMS, Zen, and Vibe are authenticating via LDAP and the GW Admin console has no problem when we tested LDAP authentication through it.  There's something special going on with GW Web.

Unfortunately all the Edirectory staff were gone for New Years when I posted a followup SR with them.

It's been quite the learning experience.

Hi Peter,

if you're on GW18.3 then there can pop up a problem with LDAPS. I have an open SR for this - if your LDAP connection is configured via SSL then you can run into this problem (however I have other environments using LDAPS without issues). So if you are on LDAPS try to connect to eDirectory without SSL (389). Maybe you have success and a temporary solution ...

(I love @bworkman 's MicroFocus videos)
