Creation of self-signed certificate on 3PAR Storeserv 7200

Hello!

While I was trying to add my 3PAR StoreServ to SSMC,  I took the error with expired certificate. I connected to my 3Par with SSH and tried to create new certificate with command createcert (createcert unified-server -selfsigned -keysize 2048 -days 365), but took the error "Could not read domain information".

What am I doing wrong?

That should work.  Can you do any other CLI commands?

Does showcert work?

Hello!

Yes, showcert works. But I find another issue. It's my test array, and I have taken it my customer.
When I try to type showsys,  I take this:

Error: The cache server is waiting for the system manager to finish reporting the system configuration and status.  Please try again later.

I don't understand how can I resolve this issue.

What does "showsysmgr -d" show?

I'm new to the 3par, but in general self-generated certs require a hostname and domain name data to be generated. As an answer for anyone else who stumbles across these check to make sure you have set a domain name for your controller before generating the certificate.

I had a failed node that was not starting to recover automatically.

After checking on the healthy node, I got the:
Error: The cache server is waiting for the system manager to finish reporting the system configuration and status. Please try again later.

These are the commands that fixed it for me:
InServ cli% showsys

InServ cli% showsysmgr -d
TOC quorum found for TOC 159864, but waiting for nodes 1 to boot up. If the nodes are offline, use 'setsysmgr tocgen 159864'.
