DMPVV - Updating iDRAC Certificate causes Connection Profile testing to fail - Can't deploy Firmware

Hi All

Any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated as I'm not too familiar with DMPVV or certificates in general!

It seems after signing an R815 iDRAC with a certificate from our AD based CA that I am unable to successfully test the iDRAC credentials in the 'Test Connection Profile'. I have also uploaded a certificate to the DMPVV appliance.

If I run racadm sslresetcfg to restore the iDRAC certificate to a default self signed certificate then this test passes without an issue.

As it is unable to pass the test if I apply a certificate, the firmware deployment wizard will fail with the following errors in the log... 

ERROR Jun 4, 2013 at 4:19:51 (GMT) iDrac Inventory failed for host testhost.testdomain with iDrac 10.x.x.x. Reason: sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target
