Download The Certificate From Clearpass To The Switch


For this to work, two commands need to be added to the switch.  See Configuration below.


The following 2 commands will stay in the config.

It will also cause the certificate to download in .pem file format. I would recommend they be done in the order shown below.

   Switch(config)# radius-server host clearpass

   Switch(config)# crypto ca-download usage clearpass retry 3


Now I have the certificate from Clearpass downloaded to the switch.
There will also be a corresponding log entry noting it was downloaded successfully. 

TestAcs(config)# show crypto pki ta-profile
