Certificate request from OA not coming with FQDN to OBM

Jump to solution

Hello Experts,

We have few nodes on which OA agent is installed recently and certificate request automatically triggered to OBM  with short name and granting the cert for it was failing.  Later we found that OMI (via DNS) is only resolving to agent node if we use FQDN. Due to this cert granting for cert request with shortname was failing.

In order to resolve it, we have asked OS team(Linux) to update the host with FQDN post which we asked to trigger cert request but no luck. The cert request was still coming with short name itself.

I tried to update variable OPC_NODENAME with FQDN using ovconfchg -edit command , restarted agent services and retriggered cert but no luck. 

 

Any suggestions please...

 

Thanks
Abubakar Mohammed

If the hostname had been changed, then you restart the agent (ovc -kill && ovc -start) then I would expect a subsequent "ovcert -certreq" would use the new hostname.  It is worth sorting that out. 

The alternative is to override whatever hostname is set in the OS using this command:

ovconfchg -ns xpl.net -set LOCAL_NODE_NAME your.fqdn
