There is an issue with an SSL certificate in Odin Business Automation Standard (OBAS). Under

Service Director > SSL Manager > SSL Certificates > %certificate_name%

... a "Server is temporarily closed for maintenance" or "Application error" error occurs.

In the error details, you see:

Can't use an undefined value as a HASH reference at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/HSPC/SSL/ line 765.


Non-ASCII characters in the certificate attributes or CSR. To test this, save the CSR in %csr_file% and try it with "openssl":

~# openssl req -text -noout -verify -in %csr_file%
verify OK
Certificate Request:
        Version: 0 (0x0)
        Subject: C=PT, ST=Bragan\xC3\xA7a, L=Bragan\xC3\xA7a, O=Totiva, CN=%domain.tld%/emailAddress=admin@%domain.tld%

Note "\xC3\xA7a" near ST and L in Subject – this is a non-ASCII character in CSR, and the cause of the issue.

This is considered to be a software issue PBAS-29194 that was fixed in OBAS 4.5.2.


To resolve the issue, please upgrade to the latest version as described in How to upgrade OBAS system to the latest available version.
