Authentication failed for username "seuser" in SSL certificate

Hi All
I provided SSL mutual authentication to Vertica .it's mutula autentication. Cross checking via below command.
But I am unable to run my application even I can't connect from DBeaver or anyother tool to vertica.
I checked the vertica log and seeing the issue.
Yes, I can see 2 users are available 1. dbadmin & 2 seuser. I am not getting what should I do next. I already provided crt & key. Even I am unable to login to user also.

Kindly provide me your suggestion.

  • Did you restart the DB after enabling SSL ? If not please restart it and then try logging in. Before restarting, please make sure everything is set appropriately.

    select parameter_name, current_value, default_value from
    vs_configuration_parameters where parameter_name in ('EnableSSL',
    'SSLCertificate', 'SSLPrivateKey');"
