Part Number

The following notes provide additional information about updating a signed certificate.

  • While the service processor certificate is being updated, tasks that are being run or scheduled to run on Device Manager - Storage Navigator are not executed.
  • Certificates for RMI communication are updated asynchronously. The process takes about two minutes.
  • If the service processor certificate is updated while Ops Center Administrator or Hitachi Command Suite is being set up, the setup operation will fail.
  • Updating the SSL certificate might change the system drastically and may lead to service processor failure. Therefore take sufficient care to consider the content of the certificate and private key to be set.
  • After the certificate update is complete, depending on the environment, the service processor can take 30 to 60 minutes to restart.
