If you delete the default ERA Certification Authority and create a new one, it will not work. You also need to assign it to your ERA Server machine and restart the ERA Server service.

If you are using custom certificates that are not in Base64 format, they will need to be converted to Base64 format (alternatively, you can export these certificates as described above). This is the only format accepted by ERA components to connect to ERA Server. For more details about how to convert certificates see http://linux.die.net/man/1/base64 and https://developer.apple.com/library/mac/documentation/Darwin/Reference/ManPages/man1/base64.1.html. For example:

'cat ca.der | base64 > ca.base64.txt'
'cat agent.pfx | base64 > agent.base64.txt'
