Content is blocked when viewing the Web console after installing a self-signed certificate
Last Updated September 23, 2013
After configuring the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) Tomcat and IIS servers to use SSL, you are prompted to Show Content when attempting to log in using the Web Console.
The following error is displayed in a dialog box when attempting to log in to the SEPM Web console:
Content was blocked because it was not signed by a valid security certificate. For information, see Certificate error in Internet Explorer help.
This problem happens because the SEPM Web console automatically resolves the SEPM server Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) or hostname to its corresponding IP address. If the self-signed certificate is signed against the FQDN or hostname of the SEPM server, then your browser will attempt to block the content.
Note: This document is for the specific problem outlined in the Cause section above. The same behavior happens when using an improperly created certificate, or when your Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) is not configured correctly. PKI problems must be resolved before the SEPM Web console will display properly.
