Each certificate that you create or install has an expiration date. When it expires, you must replace it with a new certificate so that the corresponding server or client authentication is not disrupted.
By default, digital certificates created by Data ONTAP are set to expire in 365 days, but you can specify the expiration setting when you create a digital certificate.
