Failed to verify the certificate for server "FortiSASE"

The server certificate cannot be authenticated with installed CA certificates. Please install its CA certificates on this FortiGate.

The CA certificate used for EMS Cloud communication is included as part of FortiOS certificates, and should be valid on a FortiGate with a valid licensing entitlement.

This error is the result of an upstream Man-in-the-Middle (MiTM) between your FortiGate and EMS Cloud. Confirm that you don't have an upstream device returning an invalid/self-signed CA certificate when attempting to connect. For example, an upstream FortiGate with DPI configured.
