Error generating a new certificate

Hi, we are trying to generate a new elf-signed certificate in Panorama and we receive this error: Failed to insert certificate into configuration. Failed to find beginning of certificate. Make sure certificate starts with BEGIN CERTIFICATE tag.

 

This is the certificate and the error:

cert2.JPG

 

Why are we receiving this error?

Did you ever figure this out?  I am seeing the same thing.

@rnobrega,

Outside of a few software bugs present in specific PAN-OS versions, this is almost always caused by an actual malformed certificate. The firewall itself is performing a pretty basic check as far as looking at the certificate, ensure that your certificate is actually formatted correctly.

Figured it out.  It was Panorama permissions.

In our case, this issue was solved by itself. Customer thought maybe any change in the week caused this, but not sure.
