Regenerating an SSL certificate for Virtual Storage Console

The SSL certificate is generated when you install Virtual Storage Console (VSC). 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.
