WebUI PEM Certificate upload ... no prompt for key file

  • 1.  WebUI PEM Certificate upload ... no prompt for key file

    Posted Jun 17, 2019 06:44 AM

    Trynig to upload Root/Intermediate CA and WebUI cert onto an Instant cluster.

     

    Root/Intermediate C worked just fine

     

    However ...

     

    When trying to upload a WebUI cert. I downloaded a cert in PEM format along with a key file and generated a password ( from our PKI Service)

     

    When specifying a WebUI upload, you're prompted for file name, cert type X509 with file extension of .pem,.crt or .cer

     

    and passphrase * 2 

     

    ... no prompt for the key file so install fails. with no key file error.

     

    Can't use pkcs12 as file upload tells me invalid file format 

     

    So how am I supposed to upload a .key file ? 

    Rgds

    You will need to concatenate the key, cert, and intermediates in a single PEM file:

    -----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
    Proc-Type: 4,ENCRYPTED
    <your private key>
    
    -----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
    -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
    
    <your signed certificate>
    
    -----END CERTIFICATE-----
    -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
    <the CA intermediate that is just above your server certificate>
    
    -----END CERTIFICATE-----
    
    -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
    <the CA intermediate that is above the first intermediate (OPTIONAL, Only if exists)>
    
    -----END CERTIFICATE-----
    
    

    Then import that one.
