aXes in V7R3 with SSL not being started

Post by jaimosky » 24 Apr 2018, 01:17


We have just updated from V7R1 to V7R3 and I wanted to test SSL functionality (we use it in Live Environment)
I have just define a certificate and application, that I include in the configuration file:


I have also granted to the AXES user on the folder /QIBM/UserData/ICSS/Cert/Server *RW rights and *R to all of files included there.
(in fact, I have granted also *RWX but it doesn´t seem to work)

But, whenever I started STRAXESW3, I got following error message:

Code: Select all

                        Weitere Nachrichteninformationen

   Layer (SSL) on port number 443 using application identifier AXES_SSL.  ERRNO
   is 3401. SSL_ERRNO is -10.  Message text for ERRNO is: Berechtigung

     The application identifier has not been registered, the certificate has   
   not been associated with the application, the certificate is expired, or the
   AXES user is not authorised to the certificate.                             
   See member SSL in QSYSINC/H for the meaning of the SSL_ERRNO.  Look for     
     names of constants containing 'SSL_ERROR_'  

It seems as I am missing something, but I have double check the possible problems.
Anybody has an idea, what else I could change?

Thanks a lot for your support.

The error looks like an authorization issue.
Maybe the user profile aXes runs under was not authorized to read the certificate?
