You may receive the following error message when creating a slave VDFS repository or when changing the Master Repository Connection Details for such a repository.
The error indicates that the slave server cannot establish a mutually authenticated connection with the specified master server.
You should double-check and ensure that the prerequisites for mutual authentication are met:
- The Common name of the Replication Certificate installed on the master server must match the Master server name used by slave servers.
- The Replication Certificate of the master server must be valid. The certificate must not be expired or revoked.
- The Replication Certificate of the master server must be trusted on the slave servers.
- The Replication Certificate of the master server must have the Server Authentication purpose.
For further information, read the article KB119: Understanding certificate-based authentication for replication.
For the step-by-step instructions to get started with the certificate-based replication, read the article KB120: Getting started with VDFS replication in a non-domain environment.
