About NetBackup CA migration to a CA with key strength of 2048 bits and greater
In certain scenarios, you may need to migrate your existing NetBackup certificate authority (CA) hierarchy to a new one. NetBackup supports migrating the existing NetBackup CA to a new one with the following key strengths: 2048 bits, 4096 bits, 8192 bits, and 16384 bits.
AfterNetBackup 8.3 installation or upgrade, new root CA with 2048-bits key strength is deployed.
The NetBackup CA migration process comprises the following stages:
Initiating NetBackup CA migration
Activating the new NetBackup CA
Completing NetBackup CA migration
Decommissioning the old NetBackup CA
This process is an optional clean-up task.
If you are connected to the NetBackup web UI during NetBackup CA migration, you should again sign in to the web UI for successful communication:
See the NetBackup Security and Encryption Guide for more information on NetBackup CA migration.
