SonicWALL SSL-VPN Signed Godaddy Certificate

I have setup SSL-VPN on this SonicWALL TZ-100. I am attempting to use a signed cert from GoDaddy. I create the CSR, get the Certificate Download from Godaddy in the form of a ZIP file containing two .CRT files. I upload the signed cert. I've tried with the .CRT extension and changing it to a .CER extension, either way it accepts it. After it is accepted it becomes listed in the Certificates area as:
Type: Local certificate
Validated: No
Expires: Apr 2017
The trouble is I can not select it as my certificate in SSL-VPN > Server Settings > Certificate Selection. There is only the default of "Use Selfsigned Certificate". I have rebooted the SonicWALL and still no choice for my signed SSL Cert.

I am running SonicOS Enhanced 5.9.0.4-127o. I've read SonicWALLs white paper on installing certs. It mentioned using .PEM or .DER files. However, I only get .CRT files from GoDaddy.

What am I doing wrong?

You need to make sure that you upload the godaddy Intermediate CA Cert(s) to your sonicwall.  I would also suggest that you have a look at the SonicWall doc "How to install and Request a Certificate".  You can find that here.

You have to import and export from the sonicwall to the pem file.  The doc mentioned above explains it in detail and pictures.

Hi Joshua,

Thank you for replying. I was hoping it was something I was missing. And it looks like I was right because that is the document I was using to get this done, Unfortunately the document confuses me because page 1 starts in with Installing CA Certificates. 1) Click Import 2) Select your certificate. My confusion is at this point I do not yet have my certificate as I need to produce a Certificate request to my CA to receive the cert - which I wouldn't have done yet because it starts of with importing.

What I now understand is the cert it wants me to import in step 1 is a publicly available cert that I can obtain from the CA. After importing the ""All Intermediate CA Certificates" from the GoDaddy Repository my cert on the SonicWALL is showing as Valid. https://certs.godaddy.com/repository
