I need to install patches on a production box recommended by HP and I was ask to verify other for other patches on the system.  I was running an old version of swa on that box and can not make it work.  I saw that the most recent version is 2.95, but since this is a production box, I decided to installed it on a demo server of HP.


The demo server was installed 2 weeks ago and already have version 2.95.  When I run the swa, I do get an error saying failed to access authorization service.  I saw as well, the need of installing a new certificate, what I did, but I'm still not able to connect.


Here is the output of the certificate and the output of swa verbosity=D


any help will be appreciated.

Re: swa

Are you connecting through a proxy server and do you have the 'https_proxy' parameter set correctly in your config file? You might also test it with 'crl_check=false'.

Re: swa



sorry, after reviewing the config, I realised that my nsswitch.conf files under hosts only had files and not dns.


thank you for your help.
