EBO hotfixes for SmartX Server are signed with a certificate to ensure that only valid files can be used. This certificate must be validated before you can use a new PC to install a hotfix.
If the PC has not had any internet connection while previously installing a hotfix or does not have an internet connection, the certificate cannot be validated and hotfix installation therefore fails.
There are two solutions
Connect your PC to the Internet and install the hotfix on a SmartX Server. The certificate is validated, and the PC can subsequently be used to install hotfixes on other SmartX Servers, even if you are offline.
You can manually import certificates and CRL (Certificate Revocation List)
- Download and save the following files:
- Start a command prompt (cmd.exe) as administrator.
- Browse to the folder where the files from step 1 are stored.
- Run the following commands:
CertUtil -AddStore CA pca3-g5.crl
CertUtil -AddStore CA sv.crl
- Export host, intermediate, and root certificates from the hotfix file.
- Install the 3 certificates with the default selection.
- Restart Device Administrator and install the hotfix.
