I stumbled upon a problem when uploading certificate to Dell Remote Access Card 4/I (DRAC4). I always got:
Description: Security error - the certificate could not be uploaded Errorrcode: 0x000A0004
even though I was uploading Base64-encoded (PEM) certificate.
I thought about it for a while ... and I found out what's wrong.
Even though it took me a while to figure it out, it couldn't be more simple. :-(
You have to:
- strip everything prior "BEGIN CERTIFICATE" line
- convert the file to DOS-style line-ending CR-LF (not unix's LF!)
It's quite simple. For example, you can use vim editor to do that. Just open the file (vim your.crt) and type:
and then save it (:x).
I decided to post this how-to to help all the people asking google the same question I asked when I first ran into this problem.
I hope it will be useful to you.
Btw, I tested it just on two PowerEdges 2850 and one PE1850, so YMMV.
