When I try to generate a custom certificate for a company (GW 18.2) I get the error javax.net.ssl.SSLException: readHandshakeRecord.
When I try to browse the filesystem for a cert it gives me 'Unable to retrieve information from the remote system'
In the gwadmin-service.log I find this:
2019-11-19 19:20:05 GwExceptionMapper [FATAL] javax.net.ssl.SSLException: readHandshakeRecord
javax.ws.rs.ProcessingException: javax.net.ssl.SSLException: readHandshakeRecord
Caused by: javax.net.ssl.SSLException: readHandshakeRecord

at sun.security.ssl.SSLSocketImpl.startHandshake(SSLSocketImpl.java:402) ~[?:?]
Suppressed: java.net.SocketException: Broken pipe (Write failed)
Anyone a clue?
Kindly explain what you mean by "custom certificate" and also tell us exactly where you are/what you are doing when you get the error e.g. in the GWAdmin Console on the MTA SSL settings tab, etc.

By custom I mean self-signed. At this moment support is looking at it. Even after recreating the CA it is still not possible to create a POA certificate under 'security' in the admin interface.
From the prompt we see that certificates for the domain etc. are in the right folder. When I import the CA certificate for the POA from the commandline it says 'completed' but there is no certificate in the folder.
