Today we were poking around the new Git offering in Team Foundation Service (hosted TFS), and when I tried to clone our test repo I got the following error:
error: SSL certificate problem, verify that the CA cert is OK. Â Details: error:14090086:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate verify failed while accessing https://<account>.visualstudio.com/DefaultCollection/_git/<repo>
fatal: HTTP request failed
Since we didn’t get this error at home, suspicion is that our corporate proxy was interfering with the SSL check somehow. Â The solution was simple, just open Git bash and issue the following command:
git config –global http.sslVerify false
After doing this, I could interact with the repo normally.
