External CA SSL Cert in iManager

Hello,

Forgive me for asking, I do have a feeling that this could be covered
somewhere on the internet. I have not however, been able to find a step-
by-step guide that I was able to understand.

I would like iManager on a SLES server to use a certificate, signed by an
external CA.

Does anyone know the exact steps in such a procedure?

Key is, the Tomcat instance for iManager needs to be configured to use it.

Oh.... So i should find documentation on how to get tomcat to use a
certificate. Just plain standard tomcat?

Yes. It is the server.xml and there is a directive for SSL (look for
your SSL port number to find it) that defines the keystore and password
and alias for the private key. So you could use keytool to generate a
new private key, generate a CSR, import the signed response, then point
at it in the server.xml.

Thanks. I got it to work by actually reading tomcat docs. All that
security is so frustrating 🙂
