Token signing certificate error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am trying to configure Geneva Server to use our custom certificate rather than the default certificate created during initial configuration. But when I "Add token signing certificate" and select the custom certificate, I keep getting an error :

    Error Loading certificate. The specified network password is not correct.

    I am at a loss right now because it's not even asking for a password. Is there any help on this issue?
    Thanks.

  • Hello,

    This error message appears when the format of the certificate is PFX and it is protected using a password.

    You can work this issue around by re-exporting the certificate to the CER format.

    For token-signing certificates, it is important that the certificate you choose is also present in the "Local Machine\My" store with its private key.

    I hope this helps,

  • What format is the certificate file? Pfx?

  • Assuming that you have the certificate in the LocalMachine\My store, right click the Certificate and select 'All Tasks > Manage Private Keys'.

    This will open a security dialog, where you can grant permission to the account that is running the Microsoft "Geneva" Server.
