cafservice.CAFEnrollManager | Error | caf::CAFEnrollManager::EnrollDevice::<lambda_>::operator ():111 | Error details: {"0":{"0":"ProxyModeDefault (8)","1":"EpmpClientErrorCodes: HttpTransportNetworkError (20)","2":{"0":"windows","1":-2146893019,"2":"The certificate chain was issued by an authority that is not trusted.\r\n"}},"1":{"0":"ProxyModeDefault (8)","1":"EpmpClientErrorCodes: HttpTransportNetworkError (20)","2":{"0":"windows","1":-2146893019,"2":"The certificate chain was issued by an authority that is not trusted.\r\n"}},"2":{"0":"ProxyModeDefault (8)","1":"EpmpClientErrorCodes: HttpTransportNetworkError (20)","2":{"0":"windows","1":-2146893019,"2":"The certificate chain was issued by an authority that is not trusted.\r\n"}},"3":{"0":"ProxyModeDefault (8)","1":"EpmpClientErrorCodes: HttpTransportNetworkError (20)","2":{"0":"windows","1":-2146893019,"2":"The certificate chain was issued by an authority that is not trusted.\r\n"}},"4":{"0":"ProxyModeDefault (8)","1":"EpmpClientErrorCodes: HttpTransportNetworkError (20)","2":{"0":"windows","1":-2146893019,"2":"The certificate chain was issued by an authority that is not trusted.\r\n"}},"5":{"0":"ProxyModeDisabled (16)","1":"EpmpClientErrorCodes: HttpTransportNetworkError (20)","2":{"0":"windows","1":-2146893019,"2":"The certificate chain was issued by an authority that is not trusted.\r\n"}},"6":{"0":"ProxyModeAutoDetect (2)","1":"EpmpClientErrorCodes: HttpTransportNetworkError (20)","2":{"0":"windows","1":-2146893019,"2":"The certificate chain was issued by an authority that is not trusted.\r\n"}}}

  • A packet capture of the enrollment process shows a failed TLS handshake. The certificate from the TLS handshake appears to be issued by your firewall.
