configureCerts — configures all the required certificates for the web server and updates the Java Key Store (JKS) with the latest certificate in the trust store.
On UNIX systems, the directory path to this command is /usr/openv/wmc/bin/install/
On Windows systems, the directory path to this command is install_path\NetBackup\wmc\bin\install\
The configureCerts command configures all the required certificates for the web server and updates the JKS with the latest certificate in the trust store. Additionally, the command is used to update the trust store of the web server configuration.
The command provides a way to regenerate the key-pairs for the web server that include:
A key-pair for the web service user (the default web service user is nbwebsvc)
A key-pair for the NetBackup Web Management Console (nbwmc)
A key-pair for the web server services (that is a computer certificate)
After renewal of the key-pairs and their respective certificates, the command immediately updates the JKS file with the latest certificates that are available in trust store.
If the command is run without any option, it updates the JKS with the latest certificate that is available in the trust store.
On Windows systems, you must provide the password for the NetBackup Web Services account to successfully complete the key-pair renewal. To skip entering the password, set the WEBSVC_PASSWORD environment variable before you run the command. If you do not set this variable, the script prompts for the password three times:
For the web service user (nbwebsvc)
For the NetBackup Web Management Console (nbwmc)
For the web server
Be sure to stop the NetBackup Web Management Console service (nbwmc) before you renew the web server key-pairs.
The command logs to the
configureCerts.log files at the location shown:
