Edit a server certificate to change fields in an existing certificate. This modification might be required if you are submitting a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) to an external Certificate Authority (CA).

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.

Valid characters for each of these fields are a through z (lower case), A through Z (upper case), 0 through 9, and the following special characters: ‘, (, ), +, ,, -, ., /, :, ?, space, _, and ~. Each field must contain at least one non-whitespace character.

To edit a server certificate:

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

  2. The Edit Server Certificate section is displayed.

    Note: The Common Name (CN) field and the key-pair cannot be modified, so the trust relationships with any Management HTTP Servers remain in tact. However, the browser trust must be re-established by importing the modified certificate and deleting the old certificate from the browser.

    1. In the Organization (O) field, enter the name of your organization. This field can be up to 64 characters in length.

    2. In the Organizational Unit (OU) field, enter the name of your department. This field can be up to 64 characters in length.

    3. In the Locality (L) field, enter the name of your city. This field can be up to 128 characters.

    4. In the State (S) field, enter the name of your state. This field can be up to 128 characters.

    5. In the Country (C) field, enter the name of your country. This field can have up to two characters, using the two-letter country codes.

  3. Click [OK]. A warning message is displayed indicating that the certificate is about to be modified. You can click [Cancel] to abort the modify operation.
