Certificate Compatibility

You don't have the right CA certificate installed on the SM. Check the
certificates listed under the Security tab in the SM and make sure
that YOUR CA cert is shown in one of the two available slots.

You might also be running into an issue with the issue date on the
certificate if the AP doesn't have the proper time. (I don't recall
what error gets spit out in that case.) If the AP doesn't have NTP or
the proper time set it reverts to starting from 1/1/2001 so your
certificate may not have a valid issue date if it was recently
