    Dear Popleys ,

    There should be 2 options,

    1. add pkix.useDefaultTrustAnchors cluster wide property and set it to true, to trust the well know certificate authorities (Go daddy should be included)


    2. Godaddy should provide the link(s) to download their root certificate, here is godaday cert repository I found from google,



    (option 3, you may ask help from godaddy support.)

    Hi Mark,I have added in ssg9.3 verison the following, but still I get the same error

    Signer 'cn=go daddy secure certificate authority - g2,ou=,\, inc.,l=scottsdale,st=arizona,c=us' is not trusted'</l7:detailMessage><l7:detailMessage id="4208">Authentication failed 

    Do you think,we need a server start after this change?

    'cn=go daddy secure certificate authority - g2' looks like an intermediate certificate, not likely a root certificate.

    For intermediate certificate, you still need to import to the gateway.
