Controller captive portal certificate

Hello,

I have a master-master redundancy pair 7210 controllers, and have created a new captive portal certificate using the buildin CSR function of the controller.

 

Noticed this certificate is not synchronized over to the master-standby controller, and I have subsequently assumed that is the same for the private key.

 

So the question is, if you want the same certificate on multiple controllers, the answer is to generate the CSR outside of the controller (OpenSSL) so you can import the private key with it?, or is there any way of synching this between the controllers?

If you backup the flash on the controller and copy it off and open it, the certificate should be in the cert folder.  You can import that certificate into the new controller.

Re: Controller captive portal certificate

Thanks a lot, that worked fine.

 

It has to be copied of the backup file, or would an import of the certificate from the CA also work fine?

I never really tried that since I assumed you would need the private key along with it, and that seems to be stored in the cert/CSR folder password protected.

It would have to be copied.  A cert import from the CA would not work if the CSR was generated on a different controller.
