The TN3270 Server service does not find an SSL certificate

Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:
  • The TN3270 Server service looks for an SSL certificate from a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) provider.
  • The SSL certificate has a requested common name.
In this scenario, the TN3270 Server service does not find the SSL certificate. Therefore, you cannot implement the SSL certificate.

When you examine a TN3270 Server service trace that is captured by using the SNA Trace utility, you may see the following trace lines:

Look for server auth cert with subject containing CN 'Sernername.Company.Com' Find a certificate with required subject CN Find Certificate in Store failed, error 0x80092004 Search 0 exhausted Find a certificate with required subject CN Find Certificate in Store failed, error 0x80092004 Search 1 exhausted Failed to get certificate from the store 

Cause

This issue occurs because the common name of the issued certificate uses CERT_RDN_UTF8_STRING encoding. If CERT_RDN_PRINTABLE_STRING encoding is used instead, everything works fine.
