I have a new HTTPS deployer endpoint, and I can connect to it just fine in the browser on the CM server (although there is a non-trusted certificate issue) however when I try to publish I get an error. The following is in the transport log. Any ideas?

2014-07-03 10:16:37,051 ERROR HTTPSTransportConnector - Unable to execute File retrieval on destination: org.apache.http.client.ClientProtocolException: null at org.apache.http.impl.client.AbstractHttpClient.execute( ~[httpclient.jar:4.1.3] at org.apache.http.impl.client.AbstractHttpClient.execute( ~[httpclient.jar:4.1.3] at org.apache.http.impl.client.AbstractHttpClient.execute( ~[httpclient.jar:4.1.3] at com.tridion.transport.connection.connectors.HTTPSTransportConnector.retrieveFileIfPresent( ~[cd_transport.jar:na] at com.tridion.transport.connection.connectors.TransportPoolConnector.retrieveFileIfPresent( [cd_transport.jar:na] at com.tridion.transport.workers.EndpointMetaWorker.getMetadata( [cd_transport.jar:na] at com.tridion.transport.workers.EndpointMetaWorker.getMetadata( [cd_transport.jar:na] at com.tridion.transport.DestinationController.( [cd_transport.jar:na] at com.tridion.transport.DestinationControllerFactory.getDestinationController( [cd_transport.jar:na] at com.tridion.transport.model.transaction.context.TransactionProcessor.createOrLoadTransaction( [cd_transport.jar:na] at com.tridion.transport.model.transaction.context.TransactionProcessor.( [cd_transport.jar:na] at com.tridion.transport.TransportService.handleTransaction( [cd_transport.jar:na] Caused by: org.apache.http.HttpException: Scheme 'https' not registered. at org.apache.http.impl.conn.DefaultHttpRoutePlanner.determineRoute( ~[httpclient.jar:4.1.3] at org.apache.http.impl.client.DefaultRequestDirector.determineRoute( ~[httpclient.jar:4.1.3] at org.apache.http.impl.client.DefaultRequestDirector.execute( ~[httpclient.jar:4.1.3] at org.apache.http.impl.client.AbstractHttpClient.execute( ~[httpclient.jar:4.1.3] ... 11 common frames omitted

Can you put your transport service logging to DEBUG, retry and post the log here? Did you add the SSL certificate to JAVA_HOME/lib/security/cacerts ? – Raimond Jul 3 '14 at 8:37
Could an error like this be cause by serving an invalid (or self signed) SSL certificate? – Jan H Jul 3 '14 at 9:02
It is indeed a certificate issue... Wouldn't it be nice if Java just for once had an error message that made sense ;o) – Will Price Jul 3 '14 at 9:33

The problem is that the transport service JRE cannot find the SSL certificate. It needs to be imported as described in the SDL Tridion Docs [login required]

Run the following from command prompt (in jre/bin):

keytool -import -file mycertificate.cer -keystore c:\path\to\jre\lib\security\CACERTS

Then update cd_transport_conf:

<Sender Type="HTTPS" Class="com.tridion.transport.connection.connectors.HTTPSTransportConnector">
    <KeyStore Path="c:\path\to\jre\lib\security\CACERTS" Secret="my-keystore-password" />

Thanks for the hints Raimond and Jan!

FYI: the default keystore password is 'changeit' :) – Robert Jin Jul 16 '15 at 18:20
