Importing a web server certificate

Data Migrator Administration Guide for Hitachi NAS Platform

Part Number

The NAS server provides some industry standard Certificate Authority certificates in its certificate store. You can upload a custom certificate if you have your own Certificate Authority or if you use self-signed server certificates.

The NAS server provides the following commands to manage custom certificates:

  • ca-certificate-show - displays all custom certificates currently installed on the NAS server.
  • ca-certificate-import - adds a custom X.509 certificate (contained in a PEM formatted file) to the NAS server certificate store.
  • ca-certificate-delete - removes a custom certificate from the NAS server certificate store.
  • ca-certificate-delete-all - removes all custom certificates from the NAS server certificate store.

See the command man pages for further details.

HCP certificates can be downloaded from the HCP System Management Console. See the HCP documentation for details.

Importing a certificate
  1. Save the certificate to your local machine.
  2. Open a command prompt.
  3. Enter the following command:
    ssc <NAS server IP address> ca-certificate-import --path <path to certificate on local machine>
    If the path name contains a character which has special meaning to the CLI (for example, an embedded space), put the path in quotes (").
