When i try to start it i can see this:

% Required referenced object not up

Web management: successfully started

    It seems that the certificate and key for the SSL session is corrupted or is expired. So even as the Web management interface is up it cannot establish an SSL connection.
    What you could do is create a new ssl proxy profile with a self-signed certificate and then assign it to the web management interface. This will bring up the configuration of the SSL which is missing.
    Here the steps would be:
    • Generate a new self-signed cert and private key
    • Name a new SSL proxy profile
    • Enter web-mgmt configuration and assign the SSL proxy profile to the interface
    -Test connection

    Once inside of the web management interface you can create a new self-signed certificate in the menu

    Administration --- System Control --- Generate device certificate

    This will put a new key and certificate for the web management interface.

        Hi,

        this might help you:

        1- co
        2- crypto
        3- keygen C "US" ST "MA" L "Cambridge" O "DataPower" CN "Alice" rsa "4096" days "365" export-key gen-sscert export-sscert gen-object object-name "AliceKey"
        4- idcred "AliceIDCred" "AliceKey" "AliceKey"
        5- profile "AliceServerCP" "AliceIDCred" option-string OpenSSL-default
        6- exit
        7- sslproxy "AliceServerPP" reverse "AliceServerCP" sess-timeout 300 cache-size 20
        8- web-mgmt
        9- ssl AliceServerPP
        10- exit
        11- write mem

        Please note that this certificate will expire after 365 days.

        I can imagine that your certificate simply expired recently. But you can also check the output of the following command:
        show crypto-engine and report the output.

        Hope this helps.

          Hello,

          Very sorry for resurrecting an old thread.

          I have done all the steps mentioned in this thread. However, once successfully connected to the web gui, the user name and password that i have set up does not work. It says "authentication failed." Please advise.

          Thanks for your time,

          -N
