The advantage of a Certificate Authority (CA) signed
certificate is that it verifies to the browser that the system is the system to which the client intended to connect.
- Send the certificate signing request, secureadmin.pem, to the Certificate Authority.
The secureadmin.pem file is in the /etc/keymgr/csr directory on the storage system.
- Back up the secureadmin.pem file by making a copy.
- When the Certificate Authority returns the signed certificate, copy the signed certificate into a temporary location on the storage system.
- Install the certificate by entering the following command:
secureadmin addcert ssl directory_path
directory_path is the full path to the certificate.
The following command installs a certificate called secureadmin.pem, currently located in the tempdir directory, into the /etc/keymgr directory:
secureadmin addcert ssl /etc/tempdir/secureadmin.pem
- Disable SSL by entering the following command:
secureadmin disable ssl
- Reenable SSL by entering the following command:
secureadmin enable ssl
