Generate vManage NMS Certificate

For the vManage NMS to be able to join the overlay network, you must generate a certificate signing request (CSR) for the vManage NMS. The vManage NMS automatically retrieves the generated certificate and installs it on the vManage NMS.

Generate Certificate for the vManage NMS

If, when you configured certificate settings, you selected Automated certificate signing, follow these steps to retrieve the signed certificate and install it on the vManage NMS:

  1. In vManage NMS, select the Configuration ► Certificates screen.
  2. In the title bar, select the Controllers tab.
  3. From the controllers table, select the row that lists the vManage NMS.
  4. Click the More Actions icon to the right of the row and select Generate CSR.

vManage NMS automatically generates the CSR, retrieves the generated certificate, and installs it on the vManage NMS. The Controller table now displays the certificate serial number and expiration date.

If, when you configured certificate settings, you selected Manual certificate signing, see Generate a Certificate for information about manually generating a certificate for the vManage NMS.

Verify Certificate Installation

To verify that the certificate is installed on the vManage NMS:

  1. In vManage NMS, select the Configuration ► Devices screen.
  2. In the title bar, select the Controllers tab.
  3. From the controllers table, select the row that lists the vManage NMS.
  4. Check the Certificate Status column to ensure that the certificate has been installed.
