Can you perhaps post just the first two or three lines of that file? Perhaps 
the encoding scheme is not correct or you need some parameter to correctly read 
 that file.

You can place that file in a dataset and then try out RACF to check that file's 

RACDCERT CHECKCERT(<dataset containing your certificate>)

Alternatively, can you contact the vendor about this?
