Any zypper command which needs to download data from the SUSE Manager Server gives the following error:

Error code: Curl error 60
Error message: SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate



Depending on which SUSE Manager client is used, the following steps are needed to solve the issue.

1. On servers running the salt-minion.service run "salt-call state.apply certs"

2. On servers using the traditional client.

2.1   Is rhn-org-trusted-ssl-cert-1.0-1.noarch.rpm package installed?
2.1.1 Check with "rpm -qa | grep rhn-org-trusted-ssl-cert-1.0-1.noarch" if installed go to step 2.2, if not installed continue with step 2.1.2.
2.1.2 Get the package from the server with "wget http://<sumaserver-fqdn>/pub/rhn-org-trusted-ssl-cert-1.0-1.noarch.rpm"
2.1.3 Install the package with "rpm -ihv rhn-org-trusted-ssl-cert-1.0-1.noarch.rpm"


2.2   Is the softlink "/etc/pki/trust/anchors/RHN-ORG-TRUSTED-SSL-CERT" available? If not create it with:
2.2.1 "ln -s /usr/share/rhn/RHN-ORG-TRUSTED-SSL-CERT /etc/pki/trust/anchors/RHN-ORG-TRUSTED-SSL-CERT"
2.2.2 Followed by a "update-ca-certificates"


The file RHN-ORG-TRUSTED-SSL-CERT or the link to the file RHN-ORG-TRUSTED-SSL-CERT is missing in the /etc/pki/trusts/anchors directory.
For the SUSE Manager clients to be able to contact the SUSE Manager Server the Trusted SSL Certificate is needed.
