If you have a chained CA-signed certificate or a chained self-signed certificate, you must combine the certificates in the chain and keep them in the Privacy Enhanced Mail (PEM) format. Instructions for generating certificates are not covered in this guide.
Note: By default, server certificates available for Web and Appliance Management are self-signed certificates.
