Why does my new VeriSign certificate show as Expired when I upload it to my Barracuda Networks product?

Solution #00000989

Scope:
This solution applies to all Barracuda Networks products.

Answer:
From VeriSign's official Web site:

As of April 2006, all SSL certificates issued by VeriSign require the installation of an Intermediate CA certificate.

The SSL certificates are signed by an Intermediate CA using a two-tier hierarchy (also known as trust chain) which enhances the security of your SSL certificates.

To install an intermediate certificate on any Barracuda Networks product, paste the Barracuda unit's certificate into a text file, and then paste VeriSign's intermediate certificate below the Barracuda unit's certificate. Save the file and upload to the Barracuda unit using the form on the Advanced > SSL or Advanced > Secure Administration pages of the Barracuda's Web user interface.

Additional Notes:
Here is VeriSign's Intermediate CA Certificate:
