RHCS error when agent tries to look at requests
Last modified: 2015-11-16 15:17:23 EST
Description of problem: "We performed an os patch and rebooted the server last weekend. Now when we receive a certificate request and we click on it to review it we get this error:
The Certificate System has encountered an unrecoverable error.
java.lang.ClassCastException: netscape.security.x509.Extension cannot be cast to netscape.security.x509.CRLDistributionPointsExtension
Please contact your local administrator for assistance.
Our certificate profiles have not changed in over a year"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 8.1
How reproducible: Constantly
Steps to Reproduce:
use the suggested workaround:
- Enable a profile with CRLDistributionPointsExtDefault extension in it
- Go to end-services page and submit a cert request using that profile (any dumb req will do)
And voila, you've got CRLDistributionPointsExtension working. You can now go to agent page and reject/delete dump request. This will last till next CA reboot.
Works on RH CA 8.1.
After the workaround, reboot the system and it will fail again.
