Title

Admin console cannot validate certificate

Your post

Whenever I try to launch Admin Console on a remote machine (ie not the machine running the server) I get an error message saying that Java 'Failed to validate certificate'. I'm given two options 'Details' and 'OK'. If I choose OK, the console then quits. 'Details' gives the following message:

 

java.security.cert.CertificateException: Unable to evaluate certificates at com.sun.deploy.security.MacOSXTrustUI.evaluateTrustAndShow(MacOSXTrustUI.java:147) at com.sun.deploy.security.MacOSXTrustUI.showDialog(MacOSXTrustUI.java:47) at com.sun.deploy.security.X509Util.showSecurityDialog(X509Util.java:152) at com.sun.deploy.security.TrustDecider.isAllPermissionGranted(TrustDecider.java:663) at com.sun.javaws.security.AppPolicy.grantUnrestrictedAccess(AppPolicy.java:264) at com.sun.javaws.LaunchDownload.checkSignedResourcesHelper(LaunchDownload.java:1460) at com.sun.javaws.LaunchDownload.checkSignedResources(LaunchDownload.java:1170) at com.sun.javaws.Launcher.prepareLaunchFile(Launcher.java:1020) at com.sun.javaws.Launcher.prepareToLaunch(Launcher.java:306) at com.sun.javaws.Launcher.prepareToLaunch(Launcher.java:183) at com.sun.javaws.Launcher.launch(Launcher.java:104) at com.sun.javaws.Main.launchApp(Main.java:405) at com.sun.javaws.Main.continueInSecureThread(Main.java:252) at com.sun.javaws.Main$1.run(Main.java:111) at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:637)

 

 

I've tried clearing the Java cache and checked that ports 16000 and 16001 are open on the server machine.

 

I can launch Admin Console on the server itself without any problems, just not on a remote machine. Any suggestions?

 

Server: FMSA 11.0.1.95 on Mac OS X 10.5.8

Client: Mac OS X 10.6.2
