Novell Vibe Desktop client 2.0


Right after updating the Vibe Web Application certificate, the Vibe Desktop client fails to connect and reports the following error in the vibe log:

2015-03-30 15:44:59,128 [server-monitor] [ERROR] Exception: <class 'pyasn1.error.PyAsn1Error'> (aca.excepts)

A fix for this issue is available in the Novell Vibe Desktop client 2.0 (June 1, 2015), available via the Novell Downloads. With the fix in place, Vibe Desktop client will prompt the user to accept the certificate which is not recognized as a valid certificate in the Mozilla/FireFox CA.
