what is server.CRT and CA.crt while importing certificates into NNMi.

Jump to solution

Hi,

 

i would llike to the difference between the server.crt and ca.crt while importing the organization signed certificates.

i applied for CA certificate to my organization and my CA admin provided only one file, but in the deployment guide it says i must import server.crt and ca.crt to the truststore and keytstore respectively.

PS: i have received CA signed certificate as single file which just has --begin certificate--- and ---end certificate---

Its dependant on your installation and SSL settings in the applifcation configuration file.   The server.crt is the actual server certificate issued by your certificate authority for the server NNMI is running on, this is used to automatically authenticate SSL connections for your clients to NNMi that are in the same authentication domain.   The CA.crt is the certificate authority's certificate which when imported into your truststore allows LDAP connections (with the other apporpriate configurations to your configuration files)
