I have made an update from a Nimble Array CS215 to software version 3.6.1.0-419853-opt.

With this version, I can create a custom certificate.

I make the following steps, according to Command Reference version 3:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Step 1:

create CSR:

cert --gen custom-csr --subject '/C=X/ST=X/L=X/O=X/OU=X/CN=FQDN' --dnslist FQDN,DomainName --iplist IPAddress

 

I make the CN=FQDN, not the Array Name

 

I make a costum certificate with the csr output.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Step 2:

Download CA Certificate from our CA Certificate Server and install it on the nimble with:

 

Nimble OS $ cert --import custom-ca

Please enter certificate in PEM format followed by ^D:

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----

MIIG...

...

...

BhQQ==

-----END CERTIFICATE-----Nimble OS $

 

Output from cert --list:

...

custom-ca:  (Pending) /DC=X/DC=X/DC=X/CN=X

...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Step 3:

Install signed certificate from step 1:

 

Nimble OS $ cert --import custom

Please enter certificate in PEM format followed by ^D:

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----

MIIHcj...

...

...9iFRs=

-----END CERTIFICATE-----ERROR: Keystore(PKCS12) file creation failed: unable to load certificates

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Why I can not install the signed certificate from the csr?
