Cloudera SCM Agent SSL SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED

Cloudera SCM Agent SSL SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED

Explorer

We are using CDH 5.8.3 and agent error has SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED even the verify cert dir location has specifiied. Below is the error we're seeing in logs :

 

Root ca has been copied to the /etc/pki/ca-trust/extracted/pem/tls-ca-bundle.pem as instructed in one of the thread along with jsse certs.

 

<<<hostname is valid and we see correct one in logs>>>

Master Collaborator
Without knowing more details it looks like your agent does not have (configured or stored) the certificate of the Cloudera Manager server, thus cannot connect to 7183 port. Make sure you follow Cloudera's guide how to setup TLS

On CM host - Keystore file has been generated and root ca is imported to the same keystore file. In the newly added host, i have copied the cert files under /opt/cloudera/security/pki/ , jsse file and updated the same value in config.ini as indicated in the documentation. I'm not if I missed anything. Any ideas would be really helpful.

 

Thanks.

I did perform rehash after installing open-ssl-perl package. Still we're see SSLError: certificate verify failed on agent logs. 

 

[root@hostname pki]# ls -tlr
total 16
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1834 Sep 5 20:54 ca-key
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1314 Sep 5 20:59 ca-cert
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 Sep 6 11:58 4ba83bb9.0 -> ca-cert

 

Looks like no where to go further :(. Ideas please ...

Super Guru

@Krish216,

 

The solution has been applied many times, so it is most likely that a minor mistake was made.  How did you add the CM certificate to the /etc/pki/ca-trust/extracted/pem/tls-ca-bundle.pem file?

What exactly did you add?  How did you get that text?

 

PEM files can be very sensitive to missing "-" in the headers of certificates.

also, it could be possible you copied/pasted and some extra characters got in there...

 

Try running:

 

openssl s_client -connect <cm_host>:7183 -CAfile /etc/pki/ca-trust/extracted/pem/tls-ca-bundle.pem < /dev/null

 

If openssl connects without a problem, your agent on the same host should too.

Make sure you have restarted the agent after making the pem file update:

 

# service cloudera-scm-agent restart

Hi @bgooley, Thank you for the response.

 

Here are the contents - On CM host below CA cert is generated

[root@hostname pki]# ls -ltr
total 20
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1121 Sep 2 12:27 hostname-server.csr
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1834 Sep 2 12:27 ca-key
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1314 Sep 2 12:27 ca-cert
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 4198 Sep 2 12:28 hostname.jks
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 Sep 6 10:21 4ba83cc1.0 -> ca-cert
[root@hostname pki]# pwd
/opt/cloudera/security/pki

-> ca cert is imported to keystore along with jsse certs on CM host and same copied to one of the agent hosts.

-> copied the contents for ca-cert generate through - openssl req -new -x509 -keyout ca-key -out ca-cert -days 3650

-> created the sym link for the ca-cert, updated the parameters in /etc/cloudera-scm-agent/config.ini along verify_cert_dir

-> Here is the output from verification -

[root@hostname1.domain cloudera-scm-agent]# openssl s_client -connect hostname:7183 -CAfile /etc/pki/ca-trust/extracted/pem/tls-ca-bundle.pem < /dev/null
