When trying to reverse proxy to Wildfly 8.2 Jboss on https port from
CA Access Gateway (SPS). Though both Apache on CA Access Gateway (SPS)
and Jboss are listening on https ports, but when the reverse proxy
rule is configured to forward request to Jboss on https port it fails
with a noodle error.

   The back-end Server(sernername) Certificate presented is bad

When proxy rule is configured to forward request to Jboss on http port it works.

 

Cause

 

The back-end Server Certificate was not in the ca-bundle.cert of the
CA Access Gateway (SPS).

 

Environment

 

CA Access Gateway (SPS) 12.6 SP1

 

Resolution

 

Adding the self-signed certificate of the back-end server in the
ca-bundle.cert file resolved the issue (1).
