If you do not want to replace the default self-signed certificate in the App Volumes Manager, you can import the certificate and add it to the local trust store of the machine where the App Volumes agent is installed.

About this task

If you have installed and configured multiple App Volumes Manager instances for use in all agent machines, then the self-signed certificates have to be imported from each App Volumes Manager instance to the agent machines.

Prerequisites

Obtain the IP address of the App Volumes Manager instance whose certificate you want to import.

Procedure

  1. Log in as an administrator to the machine where the App Volumes agent is installed.
  2. In a Web browser, enter the host name or IP address of the App Volumes Manager in the form of https://hostname.

    A warning message that the SSL certificate is not validated is displayed.

  3. Click the warning message and follow instructions to download the SSL certificate displayed in the browser.
  4. Open the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) and import the downloaded SSL certificate.
