SSMC: Accept Certificate Warning - The certificate has expired

Hi guys - newbie here - go easy.

I've recently setup the SSCM 3.6 vmware appliance and have now started to add our 3par storage arrays in the console.

On the Actions menu, when I select "Accept Certificate", I recieve the following message:

Warning: The certificate has expired

The certificate is only valid for HP_3PAR 8400-SGH624YPC9

Warning: The certificate has expired

As a result, I'm unable to conect to the storage arrays.

Can anyone provide me with a process to address this issue?

Also, is there any imact/downtime by implementing this process.

Thanks

Offhand, it sounds like the system's self-signed cert has expired. You will need to connect to the array itself using the command line interface, either external CLI or PuTTY.

Once logged in, enter the following to update the self-signed cert. It would be good for ten years.

createcert unified-server -selfsigned -keysize 2048 -days 3650

Then try to connect with SSMC again. See the HPE 3PAR Command Line Interface Reference for more information on the createcert command.

Thanks for your reply Sheldon - 

Is there any downtime or adverse impact expected by performing this operation during production/work hours?

Thanks

None. This is a "management thing" [a technical term <wink>]. It has nothing to do with iSCSI traffic and protocol.

Hi @Ruster007 

If you happen to consider installing CA certificates on you 3PAR / StoreServ or Primera array, I've created a step-by-step procedure on how to do it. Might be interesting for others as well.
