Enterprise packages: yum [Errno 14] problem with the local client certificate


Eucalyptus Versions:  3.0+

Enterprise Packages

As a Eucalyptus subscription customer you will receive a Eucalyptus Enterprise release RPM contained within a subscription bundle.  Upon installation this RPM configures the repository definition file and places the RPM-GPG key and SSL certificate and key into the correct locations.  The certificate has validity for a defined period of time. 


When trying to install a package in the Enterprise repository via yum, you may receive the following error (example):

# yum install eucalyptus-enterprise*
Loaded plugins: aliases, changelog, downloadonly, kabi, presto, refresh-packagekit, security, tmprepo, verify, versionlock
Loading support for Red Hat kernel ABI
elrepo | 2.9 kB 00:00
epel/metalink | 16 kB 00:00
euca2ools-release | 1.2 kB 00:00
https://downloads.eucalyptus.com/software//enterprise/3.4/centos/6Server/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] problem with the local client certificate

This error can occur when the SSL cert has expired.

Checking Validity

To check the validity of your cert, run the following command:

# openssl x509 -text -in /etc/pki/tls/certs/eucalyptus-enterprise.crt

Look for the section:


            Not Before: Jun 18 20:32:33 2013 GMT
            Not After : Sep  1 20:32:33 2013 GMT
Notice the "Not After" field.  This is the date and time at which your certificate will have expired.


If your certificate has expired, please contact Eucalyptus support to obtain an updated bundle, providing you are still a subscription customer.
