Import Root Certificate into NSM On -Prem

I'm trying to import out internal AD CS root cert into NSM for AD Authentication and it keeps saying wrong format. What format does it need to be in? I've tried Base64, DER, and P7b. I'm not what else I can try, I thought pfx was only for combos with the private key included.

    I see a reported issue with issue ID: NSM-7148 for this problem. Currently, only .pfx and .zip formats are being allowed.

    So, you can put the .cer file in a folder and zip it and you should be able to import the certificate.

    If you need further help, I suggest you reach out to Support and have it added to this existing issue ID.
