Discovering or adding a device before importing the appropriate CA root certificate

Symptom

A CA-signed leaf certificate for the server was not trusted at the time of the external server configuration in HPE OneView.

Cause

The CA root or intermediate certificates that signed the device's leaf certificate were not added to the trust store before the device was discovered or added. Therefore only the device's leaf certificate is added to the trust store.

Action
  1. Log in as the Infrastructure administrator.
  2. From the main menu, select Settings > Security > Manage Certificates.
  3. Select Add certificates and add the CA root or the intermediate certificates.

    Secure HTTPS connections require the complete certificate trust chain (roots and intermediates) to be present in HPE OneView's trust store.
