Wildcard cert not recognized

I have a new Exchange 2010 SP1 OWA site using a Verisign wildcard certificate to enable ssl. It works fine internally, but we only allow access to it externally via the SSL VPN. However we have a problem. For some reason my SSL VPN throws a certificate warning "The certificate was not issued by a trusted certificate authority" whenever you click on the web bookmark for the OWA. Smiley Sad

The cert is from Network Solutions, and the CA cert is in the VPN's Trusted CA store. Anybody have an idea why it refuses to trust it?

Re: Wildcard cert not recognized

You may need to add an intermediary certificate for Verisign into your cert store. I have seen this error occur and that resolved it.

I marked this as the solution since it pointed me in the right direction. Network Solution's CA in the chain above it was already in there, but the one above that was not. So I manually added the "grand-daddy" CA cert for Network Solutions to the Trusted Server CA on the IVE and presto!

Also note that Verisign has moved to the G3 version of their intermediate certificate.
