The SAD part is I have so much equipment that if I actually provided a cert for every piece of gear I'd spend half the bloody year doing NOTHING but updating certs on every piece of gear.

It was hard when certs could last three years.

Then there was 1/3 more effort when they could only last 2 years.

Then workload doubled yet again when they could only live for 1 year.

And some gear, SUCH as the HMC, make it damn near impossible to install a wildcard certificate!

And I just have to ask, if we mere mortals can only have certs that last 380ish days, why is it that the certs from the people that generate those certificates are good until 2060, or some redonkulous duration, that expires long after I'll be sipping umbrella drinks and reading actual paper novels on a sandy beach, with no electronic devices allowed!!

Do NOT choose self signed certificate. It WILL fail an audit.
One may argue that a self signed certificate should be fine for internal
use. However you will never win that argument. All you will do will get a
reputation for someone who wastes time and money. This is not the windmill
you want to charge your steed at.

What version are you on?

I've been doing HMC since before it had a web server and every version
I've used, as well as those I'm using currently ONLY supports https.

Possibly they are complaining about the certificate not being trusted??
