FMS 13v5 - SSL blocks access to databases

I have a two-machine deployment and installed 13v5, both servers are Win2008 R2 SP1. I generated the PEM key on the DB server using fmsadmin certificate commands, received the SSL certificate and imported. No issues. I imported the SSL cert also on the Web server and got another SSL cert for the Web server too. The certs are the same names as the server names. I even made sure after importing the certs, closing the databases and reboot the servers. However, after a reboot, when I use FM Pro to connect to the DB server, it does not list any databases available to open remotely. I should also note that the SSL certs are InCommon/Comodo SHA-256, which according to FileMaker is supported.

 

Is there any additional steps that I need to do in order for me to open the databases via FM Pro?

 

I have also tried to remove the checkmark in the Admin Console that says "Require secure connections" but it made no difference.
