Generating an HTTPS security certificate

You might generate a new HTTPS security certificate for multiple reasons, including if you want to sign with a different Certificate Authority or if the current security certificate has expired. The new certificate replaces the existing certificate.

Before you begin

You must have the OnCommand Administrator role.

About this task

Note: If connections that enable performance monitoring are currently configured between the Unified Manager server and one or more Performance Manager servers, executing this task invalidates those connections and deactivates any further performance monitoring updates from Performance Manager servers to the Unified Manager GUI. You must reactivate those connections after completing this task.

Steps

  1. Click Administration > Configure Settings.
  2. In the Configure Settings dialog box, click Management Server > HTTPS.
  3. Click Regenerate HTTPS Certificate.
    Important: You must restart the Performance Manager virtual machine before the new certificate will take effect. This can be done from the System Configuration option in the NetApp maintenance console or from the VM console.

After you finish

After generating a new certificate, you can verify the new certificate information by viewing the HTTPS certificate.

If you need to reactivate performance monitoring updates from Performance Manager servers to the Unified Manager server, you must delete the connections that were invalidated by this task and reconfigure new connections.
