Uploading the certificate to the web server

System Administrator Guide for VSP E990 and VSP G130, G/F350, G/F370, G/F700, G/F900

Part Number

Execute the SSL communication with Device Manager - Storage Navigator installed on the SVP as a client and the controller of the storage system as a server. Upload the private key and the signed server certificate (public key) to the SVP for using the SSL communication. The following describes how to upload the certificate using the certificate update tool.

This procedure assumes that:
  • The private key for the web server and the signed public key certificate must be updated in the maintenance utility.
  • The private key (server.key file) and signed public key certificate (server.crt file) must be in X509 PEM format or X509 DER format.
  • If an intermediate certificate exists, you must prepare a signed public key certificate (server.crt file) in a certificate chain that contains the intermediate certificate.
  • The number of tiers of the certificate chain for the certificate to be uploaded must be 5 tiers or less including the root CA certificate.
  • The following GUM firmware version is required to update a certificate file to a certificate file in a certificate chain that contains the intermediate certificate and root CA certificate:
    • 93-02-01-xx/xx or later
    • 88-06-01-xx/xx or later
  • The public key encryption method for the certificate to be uploaded must be RSA.
  • All users must be logged out of Device Manager - Storage Navigator.
  1. On the SVP, start a Windows command prompt as Administrator.
  2. Move the current directory to the directory containing the certificate update tool (MappSn2GumSslCrtUpdate.bat).
  3. Run the following commands:
    MappSn2GumSslCrtUpdate.bat r[absolute path of the certificate file]

    In this command, C:\MAPP indicates the installation directory of the storage management software and SVP software. If the installation directory is not C:\Mapp, replace C:\Mapp with your installation directory.

  4. When prompted, press any key to continue.
  5. When the processing is complete, you can close the command prompt.
