Why use your own SSL certificate?
inSync Private Cloud uses HTTPS for accessing inSync Master Management Console and inSync Web. By default it uses a self-signed certificate for SSL communication. The self-signed certificate ensures communication via HTTPS, but because it is self-signed, an untrusted certificate alert is displayed while accessing inSync Admin Console or inSync Web.
To resolve the untrusted certificate issue, you must upload an SSL certificate on the Master server.
Note: Druva recommends that in a production environment, you load an SSL certificate. If you decide to not load your own SSL certificate, inform your users to ignore the untrusted certificate alert while accessing inSync Web.
Before you begin: Obtain a .pem certificate from a Certificate Authority and export it without the private key to a folder on your computer.
To use your own SSL certificate
- On the menu bar, click Manage > Settings.
- Under the Network tab, in the Network Settings area, click Edit. The Edit Settings window appears.
- In the HTTPS access to Admin Console and End-User Web UI field, click the browse icon and select the certificate that you want to upload.
- Click Save.
Note: You must load the same certificate on all storage nodes. For instructions on using your own SSL certificate on a storage node, read Using an SSL with a storage node.
