Creating the right SSL certificate for CCS installation

Created: 26 Sep 2013 | 1 comment

Hi all,

I'm having some problem when installing the CCS suit in my lab scenario, an App server + web console on 1 win2008 r2 and a CCS Manager on

1 win 2008 r2 1 cluster of SQL 2008 r2. My problem is when i try to use SSL for SQL. All server in same subnet.

 

It says that it cannot trust the SSL certificate and force me to use unencrypted connection.

I have installed SSL for IIS but seems it is not the right step.

Can someone explain the right steps or give me a step by step document on this ?

 

Thanks a lot

Hi smaikol,

have you tried importing the certificate into the Trusted Root Certification Authorities folder (under computer account)?

Recently I went through the process of generating self-signed certificate and enabling the SSL connection between App server and MSSQL DB server. Here is what I followed:

1. Generate the certificate and enable it on MSSQL: http://thedataspecialist.wordpress.com/2013/03/12/using-a-self-signed-ssl-certificate-with-sql-server/

2. Add certificate to App server Trusted Root Certification Authorities folder (under computer account)

3. Enabled SSL under Settings -> Secure Configuration -> Production Database
