Replace self signed certificates after the installation

  • 1.  Replace self signed certificates after the installation

    Posted 18 days ago
    In the documentation, it describes how to use a custom certificate during installation (Creating a custom certificate for the console). However, I could not find any information on how to replace the self signed certificate by a custom certificate AFTER the installation. In my case, I installed the system using the self signed certificate, and now I cannot integrate ChatOps using Teams, as it is mandatory to have a valid public certificate otherwise the integration will not work (this is also not documented by de way).

    Any ideas how to do this? 

    Thanks

    Hi Danilo,

    I am glad you have resolved the issue and that my email helped somewhat - Just to capture things here, and thank you for your email and insights.

    I [Danilo] followed Steps 1-3 at https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/cloud-paks/cp-waiops/3.1.1?topic=advanced-creating-custom-certificate-console before I asked the question. It did not work. However, I believe the issue was because I still had to restart the ngix service as mentioned on your email. Unfortunately, I stopped my cluster yesterday and when I started it today, the certificate was working, so I cannot guarantee that it was only that step missing. So, I would say, to change the certificate, one must:

     

    Follow Steps 1-3 as stated above

    Then:

    REPLICAS=$(oc get pods -l component=ibm-nginx -o jsonpath='{ .items[*].metadata.name }' | wc -w)
    oc scale Deployment/ibm-nginx --replicas=0
    # scale up nginx

    sleep 3
    oc scale Deployment/ibm-nginx --replicas=${REPLICAS}

     

    Also, please add two things in the documentation: @Stacy Pedersen

     

    The official instructions on how to change the certificate. This would certainly be needed when a certificate expires

    Mention in the integration with Teams that a valid certificate is needed for the integration to work, and then point to the instructions on how to do it.

    1. On the XTAM installation host server open the file {XTAM_HOME}/web/conf/Catalina. ...
    2. Scroll down to the section labeled # SSL Certificate.
    3. Enter the path to your certificate for the parameter item. cert.path=
    4. Enter the password for your certificate in the parameter item. cert.password= ...
    5. Save and close this file.
    Select the certificate that you want to renew, and then click Renew in the details pane. On the Renew Exchange certificate page that opens, verify the read-only list of Exchange services that the existing certificate is assigned to, ps3 sims 3 cheats here and then click OK.
