Hi @BiggieSmalls ,

 

The error message:

Error([('SSL routines', 'SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE', 'certificate verify failed')],)

usually means Hue is not setup with the certificate correctly.

 

Can you please follow this documentation to set up the Hue certificate and see if that helps?

Thanks,

@BiggieSmalls,

 

Just to be sure, it would be good to share the stack trace from your incident to be sure it is exactly the same.

In the original post, the stack trace that Hue is attempting to issue a GET REST API call to Oozie to get its status.  When attempting a connection, the client (Hue) decides it cannot verify the server certificate that is presented by the Oozie Server.

 

By default, Hue will attempt to verify the certificate returned by the server to which it is trying to connect.  It looks to see if it trusts the signer, the hostname to which the connection was made is included in the certificate among other things.

 

In order to know what to suggest exactly in terms of determining the cause of the problem, we need to see the stack trace you are seeing that led you to determine you are seeing the same issue in the original post.

 

Thanks,

Re: Hue RestException: bad handshake - certificate verify failed

@bgooley  @lwang Do I have to follow the document to create hue store, when I already have a PEM file in place on the server.

I have given my Hue configuration in ClouderaManager as follows :

Hue TLS/SSL Server Certificate File (PEM Format)

 ssl_certifcate : Server.PEM

Hue TLS/SSL Server Private Key File (PEM Format) : Server.PEM
ssl_private_key

 

PEM file is valid for the server on which hue service is enabled and hue server is running on it.

 

This is what my hue error log shows :

Any idea why it shows this certificate error?

Re: Hue RestException: bad handshake - certificate verify failed

@BiggieSmalls,

 

The error you show indicates that the certificate and key files specified for Hue are not in the expected PEM format.

 

The key needs to have the key stored in base64 between:

-----BEGIN ENCRYPTED PRIVATE KEY-----

-----END ENCRYPTED PRIVATE KEY-----

 

The certificate file needs to have the certificate in base64 between:

 

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----

-----END CERTIFICATE-----

 

The "no start line" error from openssl libraries is explaining that it cannot find any BEGIN line

 

make sure your ssl_certificate and ssl_private_key files contain the above text.
