Specifying Windows certificate store for ECA_CERT_PATH
NetBackup selects a certificate from any of the local machine certificate stores on a Windows host.
In case of Windows certificate store, ECA_CERT_PATH is a list of comma-separated clauses.
Each clause is of the form Store name\Issuer\Subject. Each clause element contains a query. $hostname is a keyword that is replaced with the fully qualified domain name of the host. Use double quotes when a \ is present in the actual path. For example, MY\Veritas\"NetBackup\$hostname".
The 'Store name' should be the exact name of the store where the certificate resides. For example: 'MY'
The 'Issuer' is optional. If this is provided, NetBackup picks the certificates for which the Issuer DN contains the provided substring.
The 'Subject' is mandatory. NetBackup picks the certificate for which the Subject DN contains the provided substring.
You must ensure to:
Add the root certificate to Trusted Root Certification Authorities or Third-Party Root Certification Authorities in the Windows certificate store.
If you have any intermediate CAs, add their certificates to the Intermediate Certification Authorities in the Windows certificate store.
Where (certificate store is MY, Issuer DN contains Veritas, Subject DN contains $hostname) OR (certificate store name is MY, Issuer DN contains ExampleCompany, Subject DN contains $hostname)
Where certificate store name is MY, Issuer DN contains Veritas, Subject DN contains NetBackup\$hostname
Where certificate store name is MY, any Issuer DN, Subject DN contains $hostname
Where certificate store name is MY, Issuer DN contains Veritas, Subject DN contains NetBackup $hostname
If you provide a space between words, it is considered as a valid character.
The Subject DN should have some value.
The Subject DN should have some value.
The certificate store name should have exact value of the store in which the certificate resides.
The Subject DN and issuer DN cannot contain =, and also specific tags like CN=.
