The revocation function was unable to check revocation because the revocation server was offline
I've configured HTTPS on my FNMS server and got error "The revocation function was unable to check revocation because the revocation server was offline" when I try to deploy new beacon or install agent. It failed to download file from application server and inventory beacon.
Connection to CRL server is fine and I can use browser to access FNMS web without problem. FlexNet Inventory Scanner and core deployment can upload inventory data to beacon via HTTPS normally too.
How can I fix it?

Despite your comment that the connection to CRL server is fine, the message "The revocation function was unable to check revocation because the revocation server was offline" specifically means that a network connection to the CRL URL specified in the certificate from the beacon could not be successfully made.
You could try diagnostic steps like attempting to browse to the CRL URL using a web browser, and using the PowerShell Test-NetConnection cmdlet to check connectivity to port 80 (or whatever port is used) on the CRL server.
If the computers that the FlexNet inventory agent is running on do not have reliable access to the CRL URL, then you can configure the CheckCertificateRevocation preference to false to stop the agent from checking whether the certificate has been revoked.
