Hi All,

Most all of our servers are at 1.7, but a few are not and I cannot access the via IE. The solution that I have found so are is to use FF, which I have installed, but now receive this:


Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to 10.248.0.215. Issuer certificate is invalid. (Error code: sec_error_ca_cert_invalid)

    The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
    Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

I have searched and tried, but I can't see to find the way to disable these security 'features'.

Can anyone help me out here?

TIA,
Dave

If you have to access the servers (?) over HTTPS, your only solution is to find the problem and fix it.  The first simple thing is to check the time on both the clients and the servers.  Apparently if they are too far out of sync they won't work together.

The second thing is to identify the values in the certificate.  Check the expiration date in particular and get or generate a new one if needed.  If the certificates are commercial ones you need to make sure your Root Certificates are up to date.  Certificate properties have changed over time.  Firefox updates it's own but IE needs to get Root Certificate updates from Microsoft.

Go to Tools > Options > Advanced "Tab"(?) > Encryption Tab

Click the "Validation" button, and uncheck the checkbox for checking validity

Well, they are our servers so... I have a boatload of servers that I can connect to so time is not an issue. I ts'ed it down to the iLO version and browser version.

Following vmware I installed FF, I can 'connect' but cant login.

I cannot find the 'tools' option :(

I'm working of of this, which doesn't seem to match up:
invalid certificate can be an indication of a web page that will defraud you or steal your identity.

    On the warning page, click Or you can add an exception....
    Click Add Exception.... The Add Security Exception dialog will appear.
    Click Get Certificate.
    Read the text describing the problems with this site.
    Click Confirm Security Exception if you want to trust the site.

If you have self-signed certificates or you are connecting by IP address, you may have to "Confirm Security Exception" to connect.  Look at the Details to see why the error message is coming up.  SSL/TLS certificates on public web sites are tied to Domain names and you will get that message if you access them by IP address.

Doesn't it allow you to connect when you hit the"I understand the risk" button?
