If security is a concern, you may want to install your own SSL certificate on Cohesity.


  • Download the Cohesity Command-Line Interface (CLI) from your Cohesity instance.


  1. Obtain an SSL certificate from your organization's Certificate Authority (CA).
  2. From the Cohesity CLI, run the following command to download the iris_cli tool from the Cohesity instance:

    ./iris_cli -server <cohesity-hostname> -password <cohesity-password>

    Note: You may need to chmod +x iris_cli.
  3. Next, install the cert/key by running the following command from the iris_cli:

    cluster update-ssl-certificate ssl-cert-private-key='/local/path/to/private/key' ssl-certificate='/local/path/to/cert'
