NetBackup CloudStore Service Container security certificates
The NetBackup CloudStore Service Container requires a digital security certificate so that it starts and runs. How the security certificate is provisioned depends on the release level of NetBackup, as follows:
NetBackup 8.0 and later
The NetBackup hosts that run the CloudStore Service Container require both a host ID-based certificate and a host name-based certificate. You may have to install the certificates on those hosts.
If the NetBackup master server is clustered, you must ensure that the active node and the passive nodes have both host named-based and host-ID based certificates. See the NetBackup Security and Encryption Guide for NetBackup 8.0 or later:
NetBackup 7.7 and 7.7.x
The NetBackup hosts that run the CloudStore Service Container require a host name-based certificate. You must use a command to install it on a media server.
You do not need to generate a security certificate, if you have already generated it before configuring the cloud storage.
The host name-based security certificates expire after one year. NetBackup automatically replaces existing certificates with new ones as needed.
The security certificates that are provisioned for other NetBackup features or purposes satisfy the certificate requirement for the NetBackup CloudStore Service Container. The NetBackup Access Control feature uses security certificates, and the NetBackup Administration Console requires security certificates for interhost communication.
If the NetBackup master server is clustered, you must ensure that the active node and the passive node have host named-based certificates. See the 7.7.x version of the NetBackup Security and Encryption Guide
Where the media server security certificates reside depend on the release level of NetBackup, as follows:
NetBackup 7.7 and later
The certificate name is the host name that you used when you configured the NetBackup media server software on the host. The path for the certificate is as follows, depending on operating system:
