Installing a CA certificate if you use StorageGRID Webscale

For ONTAP to authenticate with StorageGRID Webscale as the object store for FabricPool, you must install a StorageGRID Webscale CA certificate on the cluster.

Before you begin

The fully qualified domain name (FQDN) and the custom common name on the StorageGRID Webscale CA certificate must match.

Steps

  1. Follow the StorageGRID Webscale documentation to copy the StorageGRID Webscale system's CA certificate by using the Grid Management Interface.
  2. While adding StorageGRID Webscale as an external capacity tier, a message is displayed if the CA certificate is not present. Add the StorageGRID Webscale CA certificate.
