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

If you do not have access to the Unified Manager web UI, you can regenerate the HTTPS certificate using the maintenance console.

Steps

  1. In the toolbar, click , and then click HTTPS Certificate from the Setup menu.
  2. Click Regenerate HTTPS Certificate.
    The Regenerate HTTPS Certificate dialog box appears to warn you that the new certificate will replace the existing certificate.
  3. If you want to define or change any of the values in the certificate, enter the changes in the Regenerate HTTPS Certificate dialog box.
    The Common Name and Alternative Names fields will use the values from the existing certificate if you do not enter new values. The other fields do not require values, but you can enter values, for example, for the City, State, and Country if you want those values to be populated in the certificate.
  4. Click Yes to regenerate the certificate.
  5. Restart the Unified Manager server so that the new certificate takes effect.

After you finish

Verify the new certificate information by viewing the HTTPS certificate.
