A certificate needs to be uploaded for the first time or replaced within Jetty for the MCU.
Please ensure the certificate to be used within the MCU is in .pfx format before continuing.
The .pfx format will include the certificate, public key, and private key together which is crucial to creating the keystore certificate for the MCU.
For assistance creating a self-signed .pfx certificate to use within the MCU please see the following KB article:
How To Create a Self Signed Certificate for Management Console for Unix (MCU) on Windows
Additionally, please ensure the latest Java release has been downloaded and installed (if not installed already)
The latest version of Java can be found by clicking on this text.
Start by running the following command to export the .pfx certificate to the keystore file required:
"C:\Program Files\Java\JRE_RELEASE\bin\keytool.exe" -importkeystore -srckeystore \PATH\TO\CERTIFICATE.PFX -srcstoretype PKCS12 -destkeystore keystore
Now that the keystore file has been created please backup, and then overwrite, the keystore file with this new keystore file which can be located at:
C:\ProgramData\Quest Software\Management Console for Unix\jetty-base\etc\keystore
Once the above file is replaced please edit the custom.cfg file with the password for this keystore.
The custom.cfg can be found here:
C:\ProgramData\Quest Software\Management Console for Unix\resources\custom.cfg
The 3 lines which need the password updated are as follows:
-Djetty.sslContext.keyStorePassword=KEYSTORE_PASSWORD_HERE -Djetty.sslContext.keyManagerPassword=KEYSTORE_PASSWORD_HERE -Djetty.sslContext.trustStorePassword=KEYSTORE_PASSWORD_HERE
-Djetty.sslContext.keyStorePassword=OBF:OBFUSCATION_HERE -Djetty.sslContext.keyManagerPassword=OBF:OBFUSCATION_HERE -Djetty.sslContext.trustStorePassword=OBF:OBFUSCATION_HERE
-Djetty.sslContext.keyStorePassword=OBF:1wm34wvn2hbi2n8j2w843pes2whv1qu0 -Djetty.sslContext.keyManagerPassword=OBF:1wm34wvn2hbi2n8j2w843pes2whv1qu0 -Djetty.sslContext.trustStorePassword=OBF:1wm34wvn2hbi2n8j2w843pes2whv1qu0
