  • Did you add the certificate recently? Did you add it to central admin? – Christoffer Apr 29 '16 at 14:06
  • Hi Christoffer no this was not installed recently we had a admin who did it previously long back. I have no clue if how he did it . This is the first time I am facing it . – SPLearner Apr 29 '16 at 14:13
  • Looks to me it appears to be a self-signed cert (dev.pdot..) Import the cert into SharePoint see link on how to – MackieeE Apr 29 '16 at 14:13

Looks Like your STS cert having the Broken Chain. Please make sure both STS cert (fedauth.dev.pdot.state.pa.us) and Root Cert both added into the SharePoint.

  • You can go to Central admin > Security > Trust
  • on this page add all certificates one by one.

Please make sure all the certificate in the chain added in the sharepoint.

    No, you have to make sure all the certificate should be there...if certificate get change then new certificate should be added. Another thing, browse the site, in browser, on the address bad click on cerrificate icon, it will open the certifcate dialog. from here click on the Certification path, make all the cert listed here should be in SharePoint – Waqas Sarwar MVP Apr 29 '16 at 15:38
