Getting Data In

SSL error with tcp-ssl input

I have a Splunk server which is receiving data on a tcp-ssl port successfully for a particular application (SecureCircle). I'm trying to set up a new port to receive data from Palo Alto firewalls but it's running into an the following error:

 

 

WARN  SSLCommon - Received fatal SSL3 alert. ssl_state='SSLv3 read client key exchange A', alert_description='certificate unknown'

 

 

I'm using the same certificate an SSL configuration for both ports so I know that the cert is fine. It's not a self singed cert. It's valid until 2022.

I've been looking through some old posts with similar errors but none of them seemed to match my issue.  Below is my Port and SSL configuration from the btool inputs command

The configuration for the working port is:

/opt/splunk/etc/apps/ahs_ta_securecircle/local/inputs.conf             sourcetype = SecureCircle
