I've searched through the community and have seen similar problems there wasn't a sure-fire solution. I am attempting to install a custom SSL cert in the Data Storage Manager Data Collector. So far, every attempt has resulted in failure with the Data collector telling me "Error Registering Certificate on Data Collector. Verify certificate and key are in a supported format.
I've tried the cert in DER, PEM and the private key in .p12 and .PFX. I don't know what else to try at this point. I've verified the alias is correct with portecle, I know the password is correct...has anyone successfully imported a cert?
This is all based on recent nessus scans identifying the self-signed cert.
I just sent you a private message so I can work with you on fixing this issue.
Did you ever get this fixed? I am having the same problem. I am not really sure what it is asking for on the Alias part either. I have the certificate exported and I have a the password but not sure what I am doing wrong.
Got the same Problem!!!!

openssl req -new -sha256 -nodes -out <servername>.admin.int.csr -newkey rsa:2048 -keyout <servername>.admin.int.key
Singed this at the windows CA. And converted the key in pkcs#12.
openssl pkcs12 -export -out <servername>.admin.int.pfx -inkey <servername>.admin.int.key
Also getting only the big red box with the x and no message at all.
