The secure sockets layer (SSL) certificate sent by the server was invalid and this item will not be crawled - SharePoint Search Error

When starting the full crawl of the default content which includes HTTPS sites, I received the error:
"The secure sockets layer (SSL) certificate sent by the server was invalid and this item will not be crawled."
The secure sockets layer (SSL) certificate sent by the server was invalid and this item will not be crawled
Its because one of the site was SSL enabled and Index server is not configured to Trust the site.

Solution:
Go to "Central Administration > Application Management > Manage Search Service > and click on
Farm Level Search Settings.

Scroll to the bottom of the page, under the SSL Certificate Warning Configuration section, select the "Ignore SSL certificate name warnings" and click OK.

Same can be done by clicking "Proxy and timeouts" link in Search Administration of SSP.

  1. I've had this issue a few times before, luckily I had some SSL certificate consultants to help me out with the issue. I'd recommend trying this though! I almost got it done, almost.
