You can return the certificate that was updated by the procedure in Updating a signed certificate back to default.

  • You must have the Storage Administrator (Initial Configuration) role to perform this task.
  • You must be logged into the management client.
  • A private key (.key file) has been created. Make sure that the file name is server.key. See Creating a private key using the OpenSSL command.
  • The passphrase for the private key (server.key file) is released.
  • A signed public key certificate (.crt file) has been acquired. Make sure that the file name is server.crt. See Creating a public key using the OpenSSL command.
  • The private key (.key file) must be in PEM format. You cannot use DER format.
  • The signed public key certificate (.crt file) must be in X509 PEM format. You cannot use X509 DER format. See Obtaining a self-signed certificate.
  • The extended profile fields in the X.509 certificate support the following items as specified in RFC5280:
    • BasicConstraints
    • KeyUsage
    • SubjectKeyIdentifier
    • subjectAltName
  • The passphrase for the private key (server.key file) must be released.
