Downloading an HTTPS certificate signing request

You can download a certification request for the current HTTPS security certificate so that you can provide the file to a Certificate Authority to sign. A CA-signed certificate helps prevent man-in-the-middle attacks and provides better security protection than a self-signed certificate.

Before you begin

You must have the OnCommand Administrator role.

Steps

  1. Click Administration > Configure Settings.
  2. In the Configure Settings dialog box, click Management Server > HTTPS.
  3. Click Download HTTPS Certificate Signing Request.
  4. Save the <hostname>.csr file.

After you finish

You can provide the file to a Certificate Authority to sign and then install the signed certificate.
