Before you can generate and install certificates, you must configure a certificate authority (CA).
Cloud Foundation supports only the Microsoft CA.
- Verify that you have created a Microsoft Active Directory certificate service (.certsrv) template in an IIS container on a CA address server.
- Verify that the certificate service template is properly configured for basic authentication.
To create the certificate service template with the proper authentication configuration, see Prepare the Certificate Service Template.
- Navigate to to open the Configure Certificate Authority page.
- Click Edit and complete the following configuration settings.
Option Description Certificate Authority Select the CA from the drop-down menu. The default is Microsoft. CA Server URL Specify the URL for the CA address server. This address must begin with https:// and end with certsrv, for example https://www.mymicrosoftca.com/certsrv Username Provide a valid user name to enable access to the address server. Password Provide a valid password to enable access to the address server. Template Name Enter the certsrv template name. You must create this template in Microsoft Certificate Authority.
- Click Save.
A dialog box appears, asking you to review and confirm the CA server certificate details.
- Click Accept to complete the configuration.
The Microsoft CA is now available for use in generating and installing a certificate.
