How to get PaloAlto to use Local CA certificate instead of self-signed certificate.

L0 Member

On my network, I have a Windows Server CA, a Windows 10 box, and I PaloAlto box.  The PA is currently running Software version 10.1.7.  I have created a PA.csr and sent it to my CA server, and received my PA.cer w/o a private key.  I have uploaded the PA.cer and the CARoot.cer to my PA box.  It seems like no matter what I do, or configure, I cannot get the PA Box to use the CA cert I have uploaded, it uses the self-signed PA cert every time.  Any chance someone can share a walkthrough for me, or share with me a step that I am missing to get the PA box to use my CA cert?

Besides importing it, did you bind that certificate anywhere? What are you trying to use it for?

Like the cert for the management GUI? Are you creating a ssl/tls service profile with the cert and then attaching that profile under Device>Setup>Management?
