RDS certificate issue - The certificate is not valid for this usage

If you have purchased a certificate for use with RDS, and after you install it you get the error: 'The certificate is not valid for this usage', check to see if your certificate has a long certificate chain ( multiple intermediate CAs in the chain).

If it does, then get the public CA to re-issue a certificate to you that has a shorter chain (like, one root and one intermediary).
