Configuring a third-party certificate for the web server on the NetBackup master server
You can configure the NetBackup web server to use a third-party certificate. The web server instance uses the Java KeyStore (JKS) as a repository of security certificates that are used in Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption.
The following steps also apply for the NetBackup and the Flex Appliance software installation. For the NetBackup Appliance, refer to the appliance documentation.
To configure a third-party certificate for the NetBackup web server
- Ensure that you have a valid third-party certificate and a matching private key.
- Convert the third-party certificate and the private key into a password-protected Java KeyStore file.
- Create a keystore password file that contains the password, which can be used to access the Java KeyStore file.
- Stop the NetBackup Web Management Console service.
In a clustered master server setup, run the following command on the active node to avoid a failover before you stop the service:
- For a master server cluster, to avoid a failover, on the active node run the following command:
- To configure the third-party certificate, run the following command:
install_path/wmc/bin/install/configureTPCerts -keystorefile KeyStore_File_path -keystorepassfile KeyStore_Password_File_Path
/usr/openv/wmc/bin/install/configureTPCerts -keystorefile /home/keystore.jks -keystorepassfile /home/keystorepassfile
Refer to the NetBackup Commands Reference Guide, for more details on the command-line options.
- For a clustered master server, complete the previous step on all nodes.
- Start the NetBackup Web Management Console service.
In a clustered setup, unfreeze the cluster using the following command on the active node:
- Verify that you can access the NetBackup web user interface using a browser, without a certificate warning message .
