In Salesforce i didnt do anything - 

the other server is only sending the root certificate back.

In order to validate it as trusted and form an SSL connection - they must send the entire certificate chain.

What is missing is an additional intermediate certificate which validates this client one.

What you’ll have to do is contact the  support and request for the chain to be sent back rather than only the client certificate or send the entire certificate chain
