Issue: You are attempting to attach server SSL certificates for Load-Balancing VIPs or NetScaler Gateways VIPs on AWS NetScalers on the latest build (NS12.1 but get the error “Certificate is not a server certificate”.

Workaround: Releases on NS12.0 or earlier seem to work fine for AWS Cloud NetScalers. Have not tested non-cloud VPXs at this time.

To launch different NS versions on AWS:

Navigate to AWS EC2>Instances

Select ‘Launch Instance’

Navigate to the AWS Marketplace. Search ‘netscaler’

Scroll down to ‘NetScaler ADC VPX – Customer Licensed’. Select ‘Previous versions’

Select ‘Continue to Configuration’

Under Fulfillment Option, choose ‘Amazon Machine Image’

Choose your NS firmware version.

Click ‘Continue to Launch’

Under the Choose Action menu, choose to ‘Launch through EC2’. Click ‘Launch’

From here you will be able to choose your instance type, configure subnets, add storage, configure security groups as normal.
