Error seting up HTTPS connection between NWDS and NWDI


We're trying to use SSL encryption between NetWeaver Developer Studio and the NWDI. In NWDS on the Preferences / "Development Configuration Pool" dialog, when we assign our SLD system ( https://sap-xix:58099 ) and click PING SERVER, we get the error:

<b>IO error: Unable to open SSL connection to host: “sap-xix:58099”. Server certificate rejected by ChainVerifier</b>

We have verified that the connection (with a different port) does work when we don't use https. But we are also pretty sure that the server is set up to correctly use SSL and that the problem is something on the computer running NWDS.

The certificate we're using to do SSL has been issued by the certificate authority local to our company, so we've added our company to as Trusted Root Certificate Authority to the cacerts file using the following keytool command:

<b>Keytool –import –v –trustcacerts –alias emnconnect –file d:\eastman-root-ca.cer –keystore ..\jre\lib\security\cacerts –keypass changeit –storepass changeit</b>

Does anyone have any idea on what could be causing the error? Is there a configuration setting that we're missing?
