Issue

When signed in to an ssl-enabled server with tabcmd, running a command may return the following errors: 

Top level exception caught:
java.lang.RuntimeException: javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target​



OR 

Uncaught exception RuntimeException: javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path validation failed: java.security.cert.CertPathValidatorException: Path does not chain with any of the trust anchors

OR

Uncaught exception RuntimeException: java.io.IOException: java.security.KeyStoreException: Access is denied.
 
 

Environment

  • Tableau Server
  • tabcmd
  • SSL

Resolution

Add the tabcmd global option '--no-certcheck' to the end of the command. For example, if "tabcmd listdomains" is the command, run "tabcmd listdomains --no-certcheck" instead. 

For details on other tabcmd global options, see tabcmd Global Options.
