Incorrect AVA format

Have you ever gotten this error when dealing with generating a self-signed security certificate for ArcGIS Server (10.4)?  Incorrect AVA format


I was following the steps outlined here:

Configuring HTTPS using a self-signed certificate—Documentation (10.4) | ArcGIS for Server 



I changed the "Common Name" parameter and matched it to what my "Alias" parameter is. I tried a few different parameters but cannot figure out how to not get an "incorrect AVA format", whatever that means.



Backstory: I am attempting to generate a new SSL Certificate because when I try to load a map service that I published to my server to an existing web map that I have, I get this message:



Unable to establish a secure connection to the layer. The layer, <layer name>, cannot be added to the map."


In my AGOL organizational settings, the "Use HTTPS Only" option is checked off, so I would think any security should be allowed.


(note: having it either on OR off displays the same behavior)

Also, I'm tagging Vince Angelo since he seems to know these kinds of questions!


Anyways, any help is appreciated!
