Hi we have a couple of 3par 7200 arrays, and use VMWARE SRM for fail-over using the HP SRA.

we tried to test a fail over today, but got an certificate error

i did a CLI to both 3par arrays and did a showcert , and both certificates have expired.

Can anyone point me in the right direction on how to renew these self signed certificates ?

ive done some googling but cannot find anything.!

any help appreciated

Thanks
Mark Green

Is this what you are looking for?

createcert - Create self-signed SSL certificate or a certificate signing request (CSR) for the HP 3PAR Storage System SSL services.

SYNTAX
createcert <SSL service> {-csr|-selfsigned} [-f] [-keysize <keysize>] [-days <days>] [<subject attribute options>] [<CSR filename>]

here's how i do it:

get the common names of the expired certs
Code:
showcert


for each expired cert renew them. for example the unified-server cert:
Code:
createcert unified-server -selfsigned -CN "<CERT CN>"

Any impact on existing management/clients from renewing the self signed certificates?

I'm receiving a permissions denied when attempting to create the cert. I'm logged in as 3PARCUST. Any assistance would be appreciated.

use 3paradm on the 3par. 3parcust is a user on legacy SP.
