 Result of a 'certmgr -list -c -m Trust' on the server. Look for CA 17 ... .

+You mean this entry ?
+Self-signed X.509 v3 Certificate
+  Serial Number: BD98CA57CC1ECCE100
+  Issuer Name:   C=SE, L=Stockholm, O=Test Company AB, OU=IT
+Department - CA 17c[3~, CN=Test Company CA 17c

+* There's (probably) nothing wrong with the serial number. It can be
+any, non negative, integer (of any length). I say "probably" because
+it could be a negative integer if a 0x00 byte wasn't preceding the
+first byte. Anyway this positive/negative issue doesn't affect Mono.
+* The Issuer|Subject name seems to be an encoding issue - probably due
+to the charset used in creating the certificate. This could be an
+issue when matching certificates (depending on how the end-entity
+certificates are created/encoded).
+* Please note that all certificates not listed as "Self-signed X.509
+v3 Certificate" in your 'Trust' store are probably mis-configuration
+(unless you have specific code to interpret them inside your application).
