The certificate chain was issued by an authority that is not trusted
Posted on 2011-10-27
I have a SQL 2008 server. An application installs on remote machines and writes to this database. I can successfully perform this installation on 3 of the 4 servers I need to, however on the 4th machine I receive the following error:
271011 17:33:14 ERRO: CheckDBCreation failed to create database. Error: A connection was successfully established with the server, but then an error occurred during the pre-login handshake. (provider: SSL Provider, error: 0 - The certificate chain was issued by an authority that is not trusted.)
The SQL server has no certificates in it's personal computer folder to export and i don't even think it needs it. I think the client thinks it's in a different network or smething and elevates security. This is driving me nuts and is putting quite a bit of time sink into an overdue project.
P.S. I'm an admin, not a programmer. i know a little SQL but not a ton.
