Cannot upload self signed certificate

Post by zuperman » Thu Feb 26, 2015 1:39 pm

The problem I have is on my Lenovo Iomega EZ Media & Backup Center 3TB, version 4.1.108.32627

I created the following self signed certificates in both .pem and .der format:
-CA.cert.pem( this is the CA that I used to sign the server certificate that I intend to upload to the Iomega EZ; I installed this in my browser, works ok )
-server.cert.pem ( this is the certificate that I want to install on server )
-server.key.pem ( this is the key that I used to make the certificate signing request that I used to generate server.cert.pem ).

From the security menu ( https://<personal_cloud_url>/manage/security.html ) I try to install server.cert.pem ( and also in .der format ).

The problem is that I receive this error:
"Failed to validate the uploaded certificate"

Same error is seen when I try to upload CA.cert.pem/.crt.

I read the help file for this particular security page, but I could not find anything about the required format of the certificate.

Does anyone have any idea how to install a self signed certificate?

Thank you.

Problem solved.

The pem file needs to contain both the private key and the certificate, I had them in two different files.
