SSL Certificates Error for Protecting SSL Server


I'm trying to set up a SSL Inspection Profile for a Server behind our Fortigate but as soon as I activate the SSL Profile I get an error for the Website that it's not been trusted. SSL Inspection Options is set to Protecting SSL Server.

If I activate the SSL Profile on the Policy and check on I get following error:

"The Certificate is not issued by DigiCert, GeoTrust, Thawte, or RapidSSL" and the Serial Number which is shown for the Certificate I can't find under Certificates

I uploaded the Wildcard Certificate with Private Key to the Local Certificate and I can see it there. I also see the Intermediate Cert in the Remote CA Cerificate section. Do I have to upload the Root Cert as Remote Certificate to work or what could be the Problem?

I would appreciate your help!

Do you have the "set server-cert-mode replace"? this might be your problem.

Best regards
