SSL Troubles Getting a Null Cert Chain error

When i enable require_client_auth on client to node encryption I keep getting a null cert chain error. My assumption is that the certificate the client in providing to the server does not have a cert chain thus the error happening aka bad certificate.

In these types of situations what can i do as my first steps? Is there a way to see what certificate the client is providing? what the server is using to authenticate the client cert. etc.

Thank you,
Simon

Hi @scano_183208,

would you update your question with the full error and the DSE version?

Here is the documentation on enabling client to node encryption for DSE 6.8, which might serve as a starting point for double-checking your configuration. It includes a link to detailed instructions on how to create the certificates, keystores and truststores.
