I am setting up direct access using the windows 2012 r2 wizard. I am at the step where I need to specify the network location server (NLS). I setup an empty website on another server in the org, enable ssl using the internal CA certificate. I create a dummy website that simply says website found. If I navigate to the site I get the certificate invalid error but if I click continue, I get  the webpage. However if I put the website https:nls.domain.com in the nls wizard it says the website specified is not accessible. Is this because of the certificate error? or another issue. If it is the certificate error, I followed the steps to install the certificate but the same certificate error keeps coming back. Thanks

did you install the CA root authority's certificate into the trusted root store?

Your email was not what I needed to do but it got me on the right track, I had to request and enter a certificate for the "fake" website I create nls.domain.com. Once I could get to the site with any certificate error, the nls was found. Thanks
