Trying to configure External Administrator following the documentation below but certificate import does not work.


There is a problem with AdminUI for importing Root CA Certificate(or any certificate) while configuring AD connector on R12.8.3.
Nothing is logged in the server.log


Release : 12.8.03



Please perform the following workaround.

1. Shutdown AdminUI

2. Copy your Root CA certificate to AdminUI server. (I saved it in BASE64 format)

3. open a cmd at "<AdminUI>/standalone/configuration

4. run "keytool -list -keystore trustStore.jks"

    See if there are any CA certificates there. If it is a new deployment it may be empty.

5. run "keytool -import -trustcacerts -alias <give it a name> -file <filename of your root ca cert> -keystore trustStore.jks"
    At the prompt for keystore password, enter "changeit" which is default.

6. Startup AdminUI and try again.
Click "Show Certificates" and only enter the Root CA Certificate "Alias" which you set during manual import.
Enter the username as "[email protected]"

7. It should continue to the next screen.
