Trusting a certificate

HPE suggests replacing the self-signed certificate with a commercially signed certificate.

Prerequisites
  • For trusting a CA root or intermediate certificate: Infrastructure Administrator privileges.

  • Adding a managed device.

Procedure
  1. When adding a managed device, such as an iLO or a remote server, the SSL certificate, if associated with the managed device or remote server, is fetched and displayed in a dialog box if it is not already trusted by the appliance.

    A certificate is trusted if it is a self-signed certificate and has been earlier imported into the appliance or if it is a CA signed certificate and the CA that has signed the certificate has been imported into the appliance earlier.

  2. Review the details of the fetched certificate and click Yes, trust.

    The certificate is added to the appliance trust store. All communication from HPE OneView to the managed device/remote server hence forth will make use of the trusted certificate. The same capability is available through REST API for scripting users.
