Issue:

The following error occurs when running the 'caf status' command on an AIX machine: "The certificates used were not signed by a valid DSM root authority.
The remote host may be compromised".
 

Environment:

Client Automation - All versions

 

Cause:

The error is usually observed if the date and time stamp of the AIX agent is not in sync with the DSM Domain Manager.

 

Resolution:

Check if the AIX agent has the correct date and time.
If not, correct the date and time settings and then do a 'CAF stop' and a 'CAF start'.
