[ScreenOS] Unable to access the device via SSL

  [KB25357] Show Article Properties

This article describes the issue of being unable to access the device via SSL (port 443); but SSH and HTTP work normally.
After obtaining the output of the debug ssl all and debug pki basic command, the following logs were noticed:
## 2012-07-09 16:50:28: Error getting cert from hash.
SSL: Cannot find the Cert Sub Dn.
The issue is related to a corrupt self signed certificate.
To resolve this issue, you need to remove the self signed certificate. To do so, perform the following procedure:

  1. To delete the self signed certificate use the delete pki object-id system command.

  2. Issue the get pki x509 cert system command to verify whether or not, the self signed certificate has been deleted.

  3. Reboot the device, so that it generates a new certificate.

  4. Try to login via HTTPS.
