    One or more of the certificates should be renewed, because they expire soon or include an invalid expiry date, which is rejected by recent browsers.

    One or more of the certificates should be renewed, because they expire soon, or include an invalid expiry date, or do not include the subjectAltName extension, which can cause them to be rejected by recent browsers.
