Windows 10 Certificate Error 0x80072F0D [Solved]
« on: February 12, 2016, 11:59:16 AM »
When connecting Windows 10 mail to my SME server I got this error:
Quote
Security Certificate on the server is not valid. Error 0x80072F0D

To eliminate the error I had to install my server's self-signed cert into my local trusted certificate store -- but on Windows 10 you cannot install a certificate unless you are running Internet Explorer with elevated privileges.  There is no message to this effect, the computer simply does not display the 'Install Certificate' button.

I've added the relevant info to the wiki:
Windows 10 and Self-Signed Certificates

Windows 10 mail gives this error connecting to a SME server using a self-signed certificate:

Security Certificate on the server is not valid. Error 0x80072F0D

To eliminate this error you must install your server's certificate in your workstation's 'Trusted Root Certification Authorities' (It is also likely that you must be accessing the server using the name used in the certificate).

To install a certificate in Windows 10:

    Click the 'Start' button and type 'iexplore'
    In the search results, right-click on 'Internet Explorer' and select 'Run as Administrator'
    Browse to any secure URL on your SME server and install the certificate as described above.

Note: The 'Install Certificate' button is not visible unless you are running Internet Explorer as Administrator, and Microsoft Edge does not offer a 'run as administrator' option.


[EDIT]
I found that I only needed to run internet explorer 'as administrator' on some computers.

I updated and expanded the wiki page to reflect that information...
