CloudCenter 4.8 has reached End of Life (EOL) as of November 14, 2018. See End of Support Notices for additional context.

Federated Certificate Management

Overview

Effective CloudCenter 4.2, each CloudCenter component has a certificate as its identity. All required components (CCM, CCO, Guacamole, and the monitor) belonging to the same CloudCenter deployment share the Cloud Center ID (CCID) and uses a component name identifier in the certificate. See Certificate Authentication for additional context.

Prerequisites

  • Be aware that you must restart the Tomcat server for this procedure to take effect. Schedule a down time for your CloudCenter deployment.

  • Only a CloudCenter SysAdmin can manage certificates. To accurately manage certificates, verify that you can Login as SysAdmin .

CA File Setup Process

Perform this procedure BEFORE you set up federated links.

To prepare a CCM to be part of a federated setup, issue the following command to setup the Tomcat server to accept multiple CAs by issuing the following command:

 /usr/local/osmosix/bin/multiCaSetup.sh

Download Self Certificates

To import a certificate for a linked CloudCenter component, follow this process. 

  1.  Login as SysAdmin into the CCM UI.
  2. Click Admin Console > Certificates.
