Introduction

An error can occur on the admin console when attempting to administer an object stored on another mailbox server that is part of a multiple mailbox server installation:

Command sent to the wrong host
Details:
soap:Sender

This error is accompanied with problems accessing a mailbox stored on another mailbox server using the zmmailbox command line tool:

ERROR: zclient.IO_ERROR (invoke java.security.cert.CertificateException: 
Untrusted Server Certificate Chain) (cause: javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException
java.security.cert.CertificateException: Untrusted Server Certificate Chain)

Running other Zimbra command line tools may results in CertificateException errors as well.

Probable Cause

Trust has not been established across all mailbox servers. Trust is required to perform remote operations on a mailbox server.

Solution

Export each mailbox server's Tomcat certificate and import into each server's Java keystore.

Export Certificates

Export node 1

[zimbra@node1]$ keytool -export -alias tomcat -keystore /opt/zimbra/tomcat/conf/keystore \
-file /tmp/tomcat1.crt -storepass zimbra

Export node 2

[zimbra@node2]$ keytool -export -alias tomcat -keystore /opt/zimbra/tomcat/conf/keystore \
-file /tmp/tomcat2.crt -storepass zimbra

Copy each Tomcat certificate to each server.

Import Certificates

Import node 1

[zimbra@node1]$ keytool -import -keystore /opt/zimbra/java/jre/lib/security/cacerts \
-file /tmp/tomcat2.crt -trustcacerts -storepass changeit

Import node 2

[zimbra@node2]$ keytool -import -keystore /opt/zimbra/java/jre/lib/security/cacerts \
-file /tmp/tomcat1.crt -trustcacerts -storepass changeit

Restart Tomcat

On each mailbox server:

$ tomcat restart
