I configured my Farm with Central Administration running on SSL port 443. There are couple of issues I have run into with this configuration and want to share with community. My SP build version is 14.0.4762.1000.
When creating the Content Deployment path, after specifying the source CA url and credentials to connect, while testing the connection I get the following error message - 'The remote Web service request failed with this message : 'The underlying connection was closed: Could not establish trust relationship for the SSL/TLS secure channel.'.
The error indicates that there is some problem with cert. I checked that Issuer cert is there in the local trusted CA store. Since CA is opening fine, it means system is trusting the cert properly and there should not be an issue. When I added the Issuer cert to SharePoint trust relationship by using Manage Trust options under Security in CA, everything started working fine and the connection to the CA was succesfully setup. This was surprising as I always thought Manage trust option was to setup cross farm trust but in this case even in single Farm setup I had to do that.
I searched on the web and found a KB which was similar to my problem and seem to be the culprit for this issue also http://support.microsoft.com/kb/982982. I din't try the first option in KB which I believe should also work.
I Allready knew about the issue concerning User Profile Sync but the second one is new to me.
will take this into account!
