Installing a CA certificate if you use StorageGRID

Unless you plan to disable certificate checking for StorageGRID, you must install a StorageGRID CA certificate on the cluster so that ONTAP can authenticate with StorageGRID as the object store for FabricPool.

About this task

ONTAP 9.4 and later releases enable you to disable certificate checking for StorageGRID.

Steps

  1. Contact your StorageGRID administrator to obtain the StorageGRID system's CA certificate.
  2. Use the security certificate install command with the -type server-ca parameter to install the StorageGRID CA certificate on the cluster.
    The fully qualified domain name (FQDN) you enter must match the custom common name on the StorageGRID CA certificate.
