getting error when try to pulling mof from pull server

Failed to get the action from server\‘305633f0-549b-4bb5-ae75-582d8317819e\’)/GetAction.

  1. I have configured the pull server with https protocol.
  2. I was getting above error when client m/c was trying to pull the mof from pull server.
  3. when I configured the pull server with http protocol , client machine could pull the configuration file .

so I have missed something when configured the pull server with https protocol , so kindly help me on this issue.

Maybe something in the SSL config of the website. Here are a couple of things to check:

1- Verify that the certificate used for the website is trusted on the client side. Easiest way to do that is to load the URL you entered above in a browser and verify the certificate validation from there. Are you using a self-signed certificate or a cert from a CA?

2- Unless you also have a certificate installed on the client, make sure the SSL settings of the website for “Client Certificates” is set to “Ignore” or “Accept” but not “Required”

You might also want to check if FIPS mode is enabled on client (info).

Also, you’ll find helpful information on Event Viewer, under: Windows > Desired State Configuration > Operational.


its CA certificate , website ssl setting in ignore mode only . but am facing the issue

The underlying connection was closed: Could not establish trust relationship for the SSL/TLS secure channel. —> System.Security.Authentication.AuthenticationException: The remote certificate is invalid according to the validation procedure

This is the message I am getting in event viewer

Apparently you’re using a self sign certificate, no? Make sure to “trust” that certificate on the client computer.
Try to open the URL of the pull server via a regular browser and see if there is SSL issues. Fix that before going to PS.
