[Solved] WebFOCUS 8.0.08 + WAS 8.5.5 + IIS 7.5 500 Error

I hope some of you can shed some light on a problem. Here is my current environment:

Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise
WebFOCUS 8.0.08
Application Server = WebSphere 8.5.5.1 + IIS WebSphere 64 bit plug-in.
Web Server = IIS 7.5

I have just completed the installation of WebFOCUS on a new Windows 2008 VM. The default 'out-of-the' box installation works fine. I can access WebFOCUS Client Administration Console, Server Console and Report Caster. All the self-tests are successful.

I have then proceeded to apply a SSL certificate to WebFOCUS IIS 7.5 web server and create additional binding for port 443.

The problem is that I get a IIS Internal server error 500 when I try to access any of the above mentioned components via https. For example BI portal:

http:///ibi_apps work ok via http protocol on port 80
https:///ibi_apps throws Internal Server error 500 over SSL port 443

Same stands for /ibi_help. It works fine over port 80 but does not over https:

I made no other changes to WebFOCUS and WAS appart from applying the SSL certificate to IIS.

I am not certain if this is a WebSphere problem or IIS 7.5 problem. If I create a static html virtual directory in IIS 7.5 , my static contents is served fine via HTTPS.

I have defined a virtual host in WebSphere for both ports 80 and 443.

I would really appreciate any help as I am stuck at this point. Thanks in advance.


This was a WebSphere problem. After changing the IIS plug-in logging level to debug mode the following errors cropped up in the log:

"Failed in r_gsk_secure_soc_init: GSK_ERROR_BAD_CERT(gsk rc = 414)"

The problem was resolved as per following:
