It seems that installing .mobileconfig profiles on OS X does not work as
intended (or, at least, not exactly the same ways as on iOS). The CA
certificate does not get installed properly for some reason. On iOS this
seems to work fine.

You may try to install the certificates manually, but don't forget to
set proper ACLs. For the revobox setup, the "official" way on OS X uses
an installer utility [1], not the .mobileconfig profile.

But as your new certificates seem to work "better", I'd guest that there
was indeed something wrong with your old ones.
