Cisco ASA-5520 Certificate Problem

Hello experts,
I am trying to install a certificate from godaddy.com on a Cisco ASA-5520
I have peformed the following steps:
1. Obtained & installed the CA root certificate from godaddy (worked fine)
2. Generated the CSR (using the same TrustPoint under which I installed the root cert
3. When I attempt to install the certificate, I get the following error  
Has anyone run accross this before?  

Thanks in advance

you have to generate certificate request first on cisco firewall - the copy paste it to CA website or service - Ca should send you signed certificate - this signed cert you copy to your firewall - and then it gates validated or not.

I have done all that.
I generated a CSR on the ASA-5520
I then use a wild card cert from godaddy.com. This cert covers one domain and any number of subdomains (*.mydomain.org).  I could find references to others using the godaddy wild card cert on an ASA with no problems.

Any other ideas?

update roms of you asa and try again. If not make sure you have reverse dns and dns pointing to appliance fqdn and ip addreses (lan and wan). this should work

OK, I figured it out.  Here are the steps that worked:

Download my wildcard cert (*.mydomain.org) from godaddy.com
From ASDM, navigate to Configuration> Device Management> Certificate Management> CA Certificates
Install the gd_bundle.crt that was in the download cert from godaddy
From an IIS server that was already using this certificate, I did the following:
Launched the MMC
File/add remove snap-in
add certificates snap-in
exported the *.mydomain.com cert to a .PFX file (contains both private & public keys)
From ASDM, navigate to Configuration> Device Management> Certificate Management> Identity Certificates
Import the .pfx file you exported

I figured out the problem myself.
