    Hi,

    Today's date 29th Feb 2016 (Leap Year). I tried to create a self signed certificate and it got failed saying parameter incorrect. So after lot of googling find out it's because of today's date. 

    So as a work around i changed my system date to yesterday and created self signed certificate.

    So if any one trying to create certificate on this day, it's failing and there is no information why it's failing. Please handle this or at least please provide the work around needed instead of generic message. Because user is not aware of reason for failure and got stuck.

    Thanks,

    Sunil Parisi
