Peer certificate chain building failed due to unable to get local issuer certificate

Hello,

 

This is my first post here as I am a new customer of PaloAlto, but not new to networking. I have extensive Cisco background.

 

We are having an odd problem when trying to create an IKEv1 s2s tunnel between a remote PA220 and Cisco ASA 5525X headend. The PA outside interface has a dynamic address.

 

We have worked on this issue for days now and even opened a case with PA Support.

 

We are getting this error on the PA side:

IKE phase-1 negotiation is failed. Peer certificate chain building failed due to unable to get local issuer certificate

 

In the logs obtained in the CLI, we are seeing this information:

2020-04-23 09:28:06.066 -0400  [PERR]: Trusted CA not found for '/C=US/O=DigiCert Inc/OU=www.digicert.com/CN=DigiCert Global Root CA' because of subject issuer mismatch.

2020-04-23 09:28:06.066 -0400  [PERR]: Peer certificate chain building failed due to unable to get local issuer certificate.

 

I have verified that the certificate chain for the public cert being used on the Cisco ASA headend is intact and complete.

 

Any ideas??? We have scoured the internet for solution/clues on both sides, Cisco and PA, to no avail.

 

Thanks in advance.
