Can't install 3rd Party SSL into Cisco ASA 5505

Hello all

I have a Cisco ASA 5505 , running ASA Version 8.3(1), and ASDM version 6.3(1)

I cannot install a 3rd party (GoDaddy/Starfield tech) SSL certificate for the life of me.

Generating the CSR from the ASA itself I get "Failed to parse or verify imported certificate" even though the starfield specific root and intermediate certificates seem to install fine.

Someone in the Cisco support forums suggested generating the CSR from a windows computer, installing the cert on windows computer, and then exporting out to PKCS12 (.pfx), then importing into ASA afterward.

I'm met with Error Import PKCS12 operation failed.
