External certificate authority certificates supported by NetBackup 8.2
Veritas introduces support for external certificate authority certificates. This change provides an alternative to the NetBackup Certificate Authority for providing host verification and security. It supports certificates in PEM, DER, and P7B formats.
For information on external CA support in NetBackup and external CA-signed certificates, see the NetBackup Security and Encryption Guide.
You cannot use UNC paths and mapped network drives for external CA certificate specifications on Windows hosts performing remote installations. Remote installation methods include VxUpdate and the setup wizard push installation option. If you attempt to use a UNC path or mapped network drive, the precheck and the installation operations fail due to inaccessible paths.
