Use Godaddy Cert on Cisco WLC

I am trying to install a godaddy certificate on a Cisco 4400 series WLC for web auth, software version is 4.1.185.0.

We followed the cisco instructions to generate the cert request via OpenSSL, the godaddy cert comes as a .crt file.  I found some information on how to convert it to a der then to pem file via OpenSSL

Uploading the pem file via tftp results in "transfer failed".

DOes anyone have any experience with godaddy certs and a cisco WLC?

Any thoughts out there?

Here are the commands we tried, but the resulting upload fails.

openssl x509 -in input.crt -out input.der -outform DER

then

openssl x509 -in input.der -inform DER -out output.pem -outform PEM

First thing... upgrade the WLC software.  Version 4.1 is ancient now.  Latest version is 7.

Check this link... its based on Version 4.2, which also is really old.

Thanks for the link, since the software is so ancient, they don't have SmartNet on it and probably wont go that route.  The link you posted isn't supported on the 4.1 SW ;(

I looked into it more, 4.2 supports Chained SSL certs, which is all that Godaddy offers.  The 4.1 only supports Unchained SSL certs, so we'll either need to purchase a Unchained Cert or get smartnet and upgrade it.  It's in the customer's hand at this point.

This was the right answer. My client didn't want to pay the smartnet costs to upgrade it, so we went a different route all together.
