IE 11 and CloudForms Certificate Issues

May 16th, 2016 No comments

We were receiving an error when using IE 11 against a CloudForms appliance: “Error: Name is required”. It appears to be due to IE’s handling of Self-Signed certificates.

Since we’re using IPA as the authentication source for CloudForms, I figured we’d just use that to generate certs for the appliance and then we can trust the CA from IPA. Here’s a gist of the shell script I whipped up to do that. It should be run from the CF Appliance that’s already joined to the IPA realm.
