Error while configuring in Command Central


I am getting the below error while doing any sort of installation or configuration :

[b]Message: PKIX path validation failed: timestamp check failed

Caused by:
Message: PKIX path validation failed: timestamp check failed[/b]

On November 23rd 2015, the out-of-the-box default certificates provided with Command Central 9.6, 9.7, 9.8 and 9.9 for securing SSL communication expired. While we recommend customers to replace these certificates with their own custom certificates, we realize that some customers are using these out-of-the-box certificates.
If you are still using these certificates and you have configured Command Central to use HTTPS, then Command Central will no longer be able to connect to any managed installations.

I assume the above article should help. Give a try and update the forum.

Hi Mahesh,

Thanks for the reply.

Could you please tell me where I can find “Use SSl” checkbox?

Your CC version?

On CC go to




There is a check box "Use SSL".

I am currently on this issue I will update you if I am all good. Share your findings too…


Were you able to fix this issue in CC? Share your comments.

Hi Mahesh,

I am able to solve it by disabling the https of CCE. It is mentioned in the article mentioned by you for the current topic.
Thanks a lot :slight_smile:

Yes that fix is for specific versions of CC.

What is your CC version? I assume it must be below 9.8.
