I cannot activate storage provider for vvol on vca 6.0U2 with cs500 nos

Error on VCA, the Certificate could not be added to truststore. Is there a problem with the certificate?

From Storage side, when I try to activate VASA Provider, it fails with Failed to register vasa provider.

On the storage is a wildcard certificate installed (* which is valid till march 2020.


when you run cert --list in ssh, array and group have one, no custom.


Nimble OS $ cert --list

Name        Subject


array:      /C=US/ST=CA/L=San Jose/O=Nimble Storage/CN=AF-120751

group:      /C=US/ST=CA/L=San Jose/O=Nimble Storage/CN=nim012a01.ak0120.local

custom:     no certificate



custom-csr: /C=CH/ST=BS/L=Basel-Stadt/O=Ausgleichskasse Basel-Stadt/OU=IT/

custom-ca:  (Pending) /C=US/O=DigiCert Inc/ High Assurance EV Root CA


Use         Name


HTTPS:      group

APIs:       group

Nimble OS $


So I issued a new certificate to the FQDN name of our Nimble "" and tried to import it, and then to set the custom cert for USE with HTTPS and APIs. But this didn't work. Got the error:


Nimble OS $ cert --import custom

Please enter certificate in PEM format followed by ^D:






ERROR: Verify custom cert failed: /nimble/var/private/config/current/group/certs//new.crt: C = CH, ST = Basel-Stadt, L = Basel, O = Ausgleichskasse Basel-Stadt, OU = IT, CN =

Nimble OS $


Any good idea or tipp?
