When attempting to access either VHI web applications via HTTPS (https://vhiserver:8443/) or the list of VHI web services via HTTPS (https://vhiserver:9681/) from Windows Server 2003, you may see one of the following errors:
To resolve this issue, use one of the following alternatives:
- Request and install Microsoft hotfix download KB 968730 (or KB 938397) for Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2, as described at http://blogs.technet.com/b/pki/archive/2010/09/30/sha2-and-windows.aspx.
- Run Mozilla Firefox on Windows Server 2003. Firefox uses its own OS-independent certificate handling.
- Access the VHI web application or web services over a non-SSL connection (http://vhiserver:8081/ or http://vhiserver:9680/).
- Run Internet Explorer or Google Chrome on a different operating system that supports SHA-256, such as Windows XP with Service Pack 3, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows 8, or Windows Server 2012.
