If you are getting an error in your BOINC client log:

Scheduler request failed: Peer certificate cannot be authenticated with give


you must update/replace the ca-bundle.crt from the BOINC client. It looks like the file is outdated. Stop BOINC, replace the file and restart.

I put the file in the download folder for download.

It fixes the problem but it takes awhile, I had to restart the client twice and not force the update, just let BOINC deal with it, mine finally updated by itself without my pushing and uploaded everything.

What update ?
My ca-bundle.crt has timestamp 31-05-2021 17:33.
My boinc is 7.16.11
I don't believe this explanation.

ca-bundle is out of date on boinc-client to windows applications.

Read more at:
http://wuprop.boinc-af.org/forum_thread.php?id=575&postid=8360#8360
and
https://www.sidock.si/sidock/forum_thread.php?id=153

Your file may not be on expire date or you have have new ca.

I took ca from my one of ubuntu machines and replace old at
c:/program files/boinc/
and next update to any project it was back to uploading files.

Correct. I solved the problem this way:

http://wuprop.boinc-af.org/forum_thread.php?id=575&postid=8363

Edit the file c:\Program Files\BOINC\ca-bundle.crt with administrative privileges, and remove the DST Root CA X3 expired certificate.


I think, the problem will also fixed with the next windows boinc client update.

Thank you.
It´s all fine now. SRBase files uploaded successfully after changing the crt-file. (and now i can see the news in BOINC about that problem ;) )

OK, I don't have to "FIX" any other BIONC apps like this.

The site should issue this update to its software itself, but my client can't even connect, and I am not looking to report or get WU's at this point.

It would be easier to delete the project and reinstall after a while.

Delete will not help. You could update BOINC by the latest version or replace the cert file
