Support Tip: How to manually issue a certificate for node.

In case there is a problem to issue a certificate for a managed node, here are the instructions on how to manually issue a certificate for node:

 

1) ### On OMU management server ###
Check managed node COREID (if exist):
opcnode -list_id node_list=<node_name>

 

2) ### On managed node ###

Print current coreid:
ovcoreid -show

 

3) Compare both core ids from OMU server and managed node - they should be same.

 

3a) If not - change it if needed on OMU management server:

opcnode -chg_id node_name=<node_name> id=<correct_id>

 

3b) Or change it on managed node:

ovcoreid -set <coreid> -force

 

Compare both core ids from OMU server and managed node - now they should be same.

 

4) ### On OMU management server ###
Issue certificate for managed node manually for managed node:
opccsacm -issue -name <node_name> -coreid <node_coreid> -file /tmp/<node_name>.cert -pass 12345

 

5) Transfer file /tmp/<node_name>.cert to managed node over trusted media (SFTP, SCP, etc.)

 

6) ### On managed node ###

Import the certificate from transferred file:
ovcert -importcert -file /tmp/<node_name>.cert -pass 12345

 

7) Check certification on management node:

ovcert -list
ovcert -check
bbcutil -ping <OMU_management _server_name>
