File Eraser - 8.5.2N/A


When connecting a Blancco File Eraser client to Blanco Cloud or Blancco Management Portal you receive an error stating "Connection failed.  Error (-60207: SSL certificate problem: self signed certificate in certificate chain)".


SSL connections require a certified chain of custody between the client and the server.  A self-signed certificate in the certificate chain will cause the SSL connection to fail, and a connection error will be displayed.


Option 1 - Obtain a SSL certificate issued by a valid certificate authority to replace the self-signed certificate in the chain.

Option 2 - Disable SSL certificate checking in Blancco File Eraser. Instructions on disabling SSL certificate checking can be found in section 6.4 of the Blancco File Eraser Admin Manual.
