Installing SSL certificates on the storage system

You install the necessary SSL certificates on the storage system by using the keymgr install cert command. The SSL certificates are required for securing the communication between the storage system and key management servers.

Before you begin

You must have obtained the public and private certificates for the storage system and the public certificate for the key management server and named them as required.

Steps

  1. Access the nodeshell: system node run -node node_name
  2. Copy the certificate files to a temporary location on the storage system.
  3. Install the public certificate of the storage system by entering the following command at the storage system prompt: keymgr install cert /path/client.pem
  4. Install the private certificate of the storage system by entering the following command at the storage system prompt: keymgr install cert /path/client_private.pem
  5. Install the public certificate of the key management server by entering the following command at the storage system prompt: keymgr install cert /path/key_management_server_ipaddress_CA.pem
  6. If you are linking multiple key management servers to the storage system, repeat the previous step for each public certificate of each key management server.
  7. Exit the nodeshell and return to the clustershell: exit
