"Bad time value" Error While Importing the Certificate in the SonicWall
03/26/2020 5 12277
While importing a certificate to the SonicWall device; it does not validate it and states ‘Bad time value’.
If the ‘Valid from’ time and date value field on the certificate is after the current date on the SonicWall. That could be due to the time zone difference or the time and date is not correctly set on the device.
If you are using a local CA; then verify that the current date and time on the CA computer and the SonicWall are in sync. If it’s a 3rd party CA; then make sure that the time zone settings are correct or wait for the certificate date/time to sync with the device’s date and time.
