Error when trying to renew certificate "Failed to write issuer certificate to disk"

Hello,

 

When trying to renew some certificates (already expired and signed by a internal windows server) we receive the error message below:

 

"Failed to write issuer certificate to disk"

This is a VM-100 model

We have other boxes (PA200 and 3020) with the same scenario (certificates signed by windows server and uploaded to PA box) that can be renewed without any problem...

 

Does anyone has ever faced that problem ?

Exact same situation and symptoms here, with two exceptions:

  • our SubCA cert hasn't expired yet
  • the Palo Alto box in question is a PA-3020

 

The problem smells of lack of disk space, but computer says no:

 

> show system disk-space

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda3             3.8G  2.7G  932M  75% /
/dev/sda5             7.6G  3.4G  3.9G  47% /opt/pancfg
/dev/sda6             3.8G  1.6G  2.0G  45% /opt/panrepo
tmpfs                 1.9G  116M  1.8G   7% /dev/shm
/dev/sda8              90G   63G   22G  75% /opt/panlogs

 

Anyone figure this out yet?

 

 

P.S. To give this thread better Google juice, the correct text of the error message is:

 

Failed to write issuer certificate components to disk

Just faced the same issue. I faced it immediately after an upgrade from 7.0.x to 7.1.11 running on PA-3050's

 

Anyone contacted TAC for this?

Panorama stopped an updated firewall from checking its own certs:

 

Summary of web Session and Phone conversation:

-Checked certificate and found that it was not showing with key
-As cert was not with key so we can not use this cert in SSL/TLS profile 
-So generate another certificate on firewall and get it signed by CSR 
-Imported new cert and we are able to use imported cert in the SSL/TLS profile
