Resolve untrusted certificates

Untrusted certificates occur when a storage array attempts to establish a secure connection to ThinkSystem SAN Manager , but the connection fails to confirm as secure. From the Certificate page, you can resolve untrusted certificates by importing a self-signed certificate from the storage array or by importing a certificate authority (CA) certificate that has been issued by a trusted third party.

You might need to install additional trusted CA certificates if any of the following are true:

  1. Select Certificate Management .
  2. Select the Trusted tab.
    This page shows all certificates reported for the storage arrays.
  3. Select either Import > Certificates to import a CA certificate or Import > Self-Signed storage array certificates to import a self-signed certificate.
    To limit the view, you can use the Show certificates that are... filtering field or you can sort the certificate rows by clicking one of the column heads.
  4. In the dialog box, select the certificate, and then click Import.
    The certificate is uploaded and validated.
