    Workbench ES2 over HTTPS


      I can't connect to my LC server using workbench. I get an error saying "The public key  certificate retrieved from server 'servername' is not recognized as  originating from a trusted source.'



      Certificate at url https://servername/adminui was exported to file (base 64 encoded) and then added to the keystore in workbench home using the keytool.

      Environment variable for Java / JRE Home are set right.

      Workbench has been restarted after the certificate was added to the keystore.

          You need to add the SSL certificate (public key) to the "cacerts" file of the JRE that is used by Workbench.  Here is a sample command line that should work, adjust the path info to match your environment.


          keytool -import -file "path to the public key .cer file including .cer file name" -keystore "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe LiveCycle Workbench ES2\workbench\jre\lib\security\cacerts" -storepass changeit

            Thanks Steve I consulted the preparing your dev environment PDF which stated a similair command line prompt.

            The instruction said a restart of Workbench was sufficient. That wasn't the case, but after a reboot of the machine the certificate was accepted an trusted,


            Thanks anyway!

              You really should not have to reboot.  When I added a cert to the cacerts file, I only had to restart Workbench for the change to be recognized.


              I'm glad you got it working.
