Cannot enable Client Authentication

eladgotfrid1

When running:

security ssl modify -vserver data1 -client-enabled true

Getting:

Error: command failed: Failed to enable Client Authentication. Reason: There are no 'client_ca' type certificates for vserver 'data1'.

 

I run security ssl modify -vserver data1 -client-enabled false by mistake and now I cannot undo.

 

Any idea?

Did you mean to enable client or did you really mean server?

When you install or update a Server certificate and delete the original, you need to run the

security ssl modify -vserver data1 -server-enabled true

(you will need other args to complete the command!)

to re-enable the server cert. If you are trying to have NA box access, you may just need the server cert.

 

If you truly need the client cert, then you need to install one then enable the option
