Issue/Introduction

We are trying to reverse proxy to Wildfly 8.2 Jboss on https port from SPS. Though both Apache on 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.

 

How can we resolve this issue?

Cause

The back-end Server Certificate was not in the ca-bundle.cert of the 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. Refer to the following link to get steps to add it to the SPS ca-bundle.cert file :
