Hi guys,

Can someone help me with installing a wildcard cert onto my ASA.

I already have the cert (created on Windows) with the private and public keys, and the CA certs.

I have created a trustpoint for the CA and installed the CA cert. I've converted the cert using OpenSSL to PCKS12. I am getting problems importing the identity cert.

The commands I have tried entering and output are as follows.

crypto ca import <trustpoint> pkcs12 ****

Enter the base 64 encoded pkcs12.
End with the word "quit" on a line by itself:
-----BEGIN PKCS12-----
<snip>
-----END PKCS12-----
quit
ERROR: Import PKCS12 operation failed

crypto ca import <trustpoint> pkcs12 ****

Enter the base 64 encoded pkcs12.
End with the word "quit" on a line by itself:
<snip>
quit
ERROR: Import PKCS12 operation failed

<snip> is the text output from OpenSSL.

Thanks.

Try using a unix-compatible text editor such as Notepad++ or Programer's File Editor.  Open the cert with one of those, and then copy/paste it into your config.

I only use notepad++. It's very strange. I've managed to import the pfx using ASDM, but as I'm using Cisco Security Manager to manage our firewalls (we have over 30) this doesn't really help me very much.

Was unable to import cert from the command line. Had to import it via the GUI.
