Outbound SOAP/HTTP-SSL (Web Services) using the "EAI HTTP Transport" BS
An outbound web server reaches a TIBCO application through a BIG IP load balancer.
The certificate returned by the TIBCO applications has a "issued to" hostname that differs from the load balanced URL that was called.
Wininet.dll fails to validate this certificate and EAI HTTP Transport throws the error :
At internet explorer (IE) it is possible to work around this by disabling security checks (Internet Options > Advanced Settings...) .
But even disabling the IE checks while logged in as the same Windows operating system user that starts the siebel services , confirming IE no longer reports the warning on the certificate and finally rebooting the siebel server machine, siebel still throws the same error.
