Import a Certificate Authority (CA)-signed server certificate to replace the existing server certificate in the following situations:

  • You have installed HP Systems Insight Manager, and want to replace the default self-signed certificate with a certificate created by a third-party CA or your own internal CA

  • The integrity of the HP Systems Insight Manager server certificate Private Key is compromised

  • The existing HP Systems Insight Manager server certificate expires

Replacing the SSL server certificate and private key invalidates the existing server certificate wherever it might be imported, such as browsers and the Trusted Management Servers Lists of managed systems. Replace the previous server certificate with the new server certificate, in accordance with your security practices, to return to the same level of functionality you had before.

This process also replaces the local Management HTTP Server Certificate and Private Key and also updates the certificate sharing directory with a new server certificate and private key.

To import a server certificate:

  1. Create a Certificate Signing Request (CSR). Refer to Server Certificates - Creating a CSR. The CSR uses parameters from the existing certificate. If you want to change those parameters, either edit the server certificate, refer to Server Certificates - Editing a Server Certificate, or create a new server certificate, and refer to Server Certificates - Creating a Server Certificate.

  2. Submit the request to a CA. Refer to Server Certificates - Submitting a CSR for more information. The CA returns a signed certificate.

  3. Import the signed certificate reply into HP Systems Insight Manager. Refer to Server Certificates - Importing a CA-Signed Certificate for more information.
