ONTAP tools for VMware vSphere 9.13

Regenerate an SSL certificate for Virtual Storage Console

Contributors Netapp-shabaana

The SSL certificate is generated when you install ONTAP tools. The distinguished name (DN) that is generated for the SSL certificate might not be a common name (CN) that the client machines recognize. By changing the keystore and private key passwords, you can regenerate the certificate and create a site-specific certificate.

  1. Log in to the maintenance console.

  2. Enter 1 to access the Application Configuration menu.

  3. In the Application Configuration menu, enter 3 to stop the ONTAP tools service.
