Hi,

after having tested OCS Inventory with an installed Server (without ssl) on a Laptop in our network, we now want to let the server run on our hardware-server. Therefore we activated SSL on the server.

Now, starting the first Agent with

sudo ocsinventory-agent --server https://inventory.ourdomain.de/ocsinventory --debug

I get the following output:

[Thu Aug 11 12:46:03 2016][error] Cannot establish communication : 500 Can't connect to inventory.ourdomain.de:443 (certificate verify failed)

I have put the fullchain.pem from the server as cacert.pem in the Agents /var/lib/ocsinventory-agent/https:__inventory.ourdomain.de_ocsinventory - directory. I thought, that I have to do this for the client for being able to verify the certificate. Because before I did this, the same error came, just without the notice (certificate verify failed).

Any help is much appreciated. Maybe a hint, what I have to do on the agents device for being able to do ssl with the Ocs-Server.

Everything (Server and Client) runs on a Linux Debian OS (Linux Mint).

If you have any further questions, please ask me for further informations.

Regards,

Dennie
