The same root CA has assigned the admin certificates to all the nodes and they are all joined to the cluster so I guess there is no issue with certificates.
I used the same CA to issue a pxGrid template certificate to the Admin, M&T and pxGrid.
The pxGrid node is stuck in initializing stage after multiple restarts.
I checked the bug https://bst.cloudapps.cisco.com/bugsearch/bug/CSCuz50086/?referring_site=bugquickviewredir but I have all IPs allowed in the Admin Access List
Fixed it! It was the Cert issue mentioned. I just created a self-signed cert for PxGrid. It was using a cert that was signed by a CA not in the trust store.
I just went with a self-signed cert just for PxGrid and now it came right up.
Should the same certificate template be used in issuing certs to the admin and monitoring nodes ? assuming that a cert has been issued to the admin and monitoring nodes by same root and intermediate authority, will not issuing pxgrid certificate template cause this issue ?
