Configuring custom server certificates for the Grid Management Interface

You can replace the default Grid Management Interface server certificates with custom certificates that allows users to access the interface without encountering security warnings.

About this task

You need to complete configuration on the server, and depending on the root Certificate Authority (CA) you are using, users may also need to install a client certificate in the web browser they will use to access the Grid Management Interface.

Steps

  1. Select Configuration > Server Certificates.
  2. In the Management Interface Server Certificate section, click Install Custom Certificate.
  3. Upload the required server certificate files:
    • Server Certificate: The custom server certificate file (.crt).
    • Server Certificate Private Key: The custom server certificate private key file (.key).
    • CA Bundle: A single file containing the certificates from each intermediate issuing Certificate Authority (CA). The file should contain each of the PEM-encoded CA certificate files, concatenated in certificate chain order.
  4. Click Save.
    The custom server certificates are used for all subsequent new client connections.
  5. Refresh the page to ensure the web browser is updated.
