Today I came across a very weird issue.
One of the 20 gateways on our client's security management servers had its VPN certificate expired and we renewed it.
Upon the renewal of the certificate, the SIC got disconnected.
We tried to reconnect the SIC however to no avail.
Communication between Management and Gateway exists obviously as this has been working for a long time.
We are prompted with this error:
Upon pressing OK, another windows prompt up:
As a test, I took a gateway from my lab and tried to add it to this security management however same errors cropped up.
I then took the original gateway and tried to connect it to my lab management and it worked fine. So issue is purely 100% management related.
I took some debugs and from the cpd.elg I can see the below :
[CPD 23812 4133738816]@RO_PEMBROKE[18 Aug 18:44:19] Error is: General error in Certificate Authority
[CPD 23812 4133738816]@RO_PEMBROKE[18 Aug 18:44:19] cpd_recived_cb_ctx: err = -9 CPSIC Error: Could not receive the SIC certificate from SmartCenter Server. (ctx id=0).
Will not schedule the sic certificate renewal.
Has anyone came across something like this? We have opened a TAC case also about the issue.
Thanks a lot.
