    SolarWinds Information Service using self signed certificate


      I'm tryig to use the New-WebServiceProxy cmdlet to connect to the information service on 17778. It seems to connect, but the cert if self signed and not trusted. I added the cert to the trusted root certificate authorities but it still fails.


      The certificate is issued to "SolarWinds-Orion" and since the cert isn't issued to "orion1" either by short name or FQDN, it is untrusted. I'm not really sure how to reissue a proper cert to the Information Service. I supposed I could trick it by creating a DNS entry for SolarWinds-Orion that resolves to the server, but there should be a nicer way of getting this to work.


      New-WebServiceProxy -Uri 'https://orion1:17778/SolarWinds/InformationService?wsdl'

      New-WebServiceProxy : The underlying connection was closed: Could not establish trust relationship for the SSL/TLS

      secure channel.
