We ran this command "config ssl csr privkeylen 2048 country US organization IMS common-name Summit-RV-Core" and then took the output, signed it with our CA, and when we use "config ssl certificate pregenerated" we receive an error message of "Error: Error validating certificate". We are running 22.4.1.4 22.4.1.4-patch1-2

For anyone else who was following this, I think the issue was because we needed to install the intermediate certificate on the switch, which can only be done via a TFTP upload using the MGMT port.  We just decided to disable HTTP(s), but I wanted to add my findings for anyone else who may try to do the same.
