No idea if that is the righ forum, but will try.

* wildcard certificate from commercial authority

Seems that pkidiag when run as per:

TID-10097177 Error: "HTTP 401 - Unauthorized." when uploading drivers to the Broker. ( 15MAR2006)

will treat such certificate assigned to the server (SSL CertficateDNS) as a problem & re-creates certificate based on local CA

Not what I want, I purchased wildcard cerfificate for a reason!

Any way to stop this silliness?
