After setting up a new Nexus repository we are having problems creating Artifacts when the artifact creation method attempts to "Store artifact in local repository".
Release : 6.6
Component : CA RELEASE AUTOMATION RELEASE OPERATIONS CENTER
Certificate problems. If the retrieval agent does not have the proper SSL certificate for the new nexus repository then the following errors will appear in the retrieval agent's logs/nolio_all.log file when you try to create an artifact with the option "Store artifact in local repository" selected:

After creating a new Nexus repository that you configure the Management Server to use (via its conf/nolio-repo.properties file) you need to import the certificate used by that new repository into the nolio.jks truststore used by Artifact Retrieval agent if conf/nolio-repo.properties is configured to use https (instead of http).
Alternatively, do not select the option "Store artifact in local repository".
While this next recommendation does not impact the artifact retrieval agent's ability to store the artifact into the new Nexus repository, it is recommended that you review the following:
Regarding Step 2 (in the resolution section), please note the following keytool guidelines for importing certificates:
