    Removing the blank certificate pop-up in /V in IE browser when using SSL.

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: MetaLib
    • Product Version: 4

    This Knowledge Base item is only relevant for the sites that have already completed SSL configuration.
    Sites that have completed SSL configuation in version 4 prior to the MetaLib Service Pack 7 have the following system behaviour - the blank certificate file pops up in /V in IE browser.
    The example of the pop-up file is attached.

    In order to remove this redundant pop-up file, the following line should be commented out in existing ssl.conf file:
    (path of the file is /exlibris/metalib/m4_n/apache/conf/ssl.conf )

    Change the line

    SSLVerifyClient optional_no_ca

    # SSLVerifyClient optional_no_ca

    Save the change.
    Restart apache.
