Issue Details

I have created SSL certificate for my NI Web Server but when I try to install it through SSL Certificate Management tab I'm getting following error:

Error retrieving remote settings
There was an error retrieving the web server configuration.
Response code: BadRequest Error: Uploaded certificate and CSR have different common names, operation aborted.


Common Name in the certificate and certification request are the same. How can I overcome this issue and successfully add this SSL certificate to my NI Web Server?


NI Web Server accepts Base-64 encoded X.509 (*.cer) certificates. If you already have DER encoded binary X.509 (*.cer) certificate format you need to export it to Base-64 encoded X.509 to install it on Web Server.
