After creating a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) and having it signed by a Certificate Authority (CA), you can import the signed certificate.

The only importable certificate format is PKCS #7 formatted certificates. If the Certificate Reply received from the CA is a single certificate, then it is necessary to first import a self-signed root certificate from the issuing CA into the HP Systems Insight Manager Trusted Certificates List. After importing the CA root certificate, the certificate reply can then be imported to serve as the HP Systems Insight Manager server certificate.

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

HP Systems Insight Manager only supports importing certificates that have a public key size of 2046 bits or less.

To import the signed certificate reply from a CA:

  1. Select OptionsSecurityCertificatesServer Certificates, and then click [Import].

  2. The Import Server Certificate section is displayed. Click more next to Import signed certificate reply from CA.

    The Import Signed Certificate Reply section is displayed below the Import Server Certificate section.

  3. Click [Browse] next to the Certificate filename field.

    The Choose file dialog box is displayed.

    1. Navigate to the location where the signed certificate is stored.

    2. Select the correct filename, and click [Open].

      The filename is displayed in the Certificate filename field.

  4. Click [Import].

    The signed certificate is imported.

    After creating a CSR or importing the Server Certificate, reboot the HP Systems Insight Manager Server for the HP Systems Insight Manager server certificate to be synchronized with the Management HTTP Server certificate and the certificate sharing directory. Synchronizing the certificates prevents repeated browser security alerts when browsing to HP Insight Management Agents on the HP Systems Insight Manager server, which allows the HP Systems Insight Manager and the local Management HTTP Server to update their SSL server certificates and private keys.
