Q:

How to overcome SSL cert verification issue when downloading VIA profiles through CLI in Linux ?



A:

Users can install/download VIA-profiles on a Linux machine through CLI in the below format. There are chances that the profile download might fail due to SSL certificate verification, if we don't have valid server public certificate on Controller or the CA installed on the client.

 

Command to download the connection profile :

Format: via-cli profile load  --gateway (ipaddress) --username (name) --userpass (password) --authprofile <profile name > 

Example: via-cli profile load --gateway 119.82.100.27 --username internal04 --userpass aruba123 --authprofile default

 

To over come this, include the following command at the end ”--nocertwarn “ to ignore/continue with profile download.

Example : via-cli profile load --gateway 119.82.100.27 --username internal04 --userpass aruba123 --authprofile default --nocertwarn
