It's hard to say from the error you gave, but it seems it was unable to 
find the server certificate to present. It's probably because your 
server certificate should be in the keystore, not in the truststore 
(which $JRE_HOME/lib/security/cacerts).
The terminology can be a bit confusing, but the truststore is a KeyStore 
where you put the CA certificates that are going to be used for trusting 
client certificates (since you're running a server); the keystore 
KeyStore is where your own information is: your private key and the 
server certificate you obtained.
Perhaps you should try to store the certificate you obtained into the 
keystore file from which you generated the CSR, and use it as the keystore.

Best wishes,
