Reinitializing SSL

You should reinitialize SSL if you change the domain name of the storage system. When you change the domain name of your system, the domain name recorded in the certificate becomes obsolete. As a result, the storage system is not authenticated after the domain name change, although the connection is still encrypted. The next time you connect to the system, the browser issues a warning that the domain name of the system does not match the record on the certificate.

About this task

Changing the domain name for a storage system that is using SSL can cost time and money because you must have the new certificate signed by a certificate authority.


  1. Disable SecureAdmin by entering the following command:
    secureadmin disable ssl
  2. Use the secureadmin setup ssl command to reinitialize SSL.
