Managing a trusted certificate
To use a different trusted root file to validate the identity of the trusted source, import that information to the remote node record. IBM® Sterling Control Center supports Base 64-encoded key certificate files.
To create one or more trusted certificates, which are already loaded on your Sterling Connect:Direct® server:
- Go to .Note: If this option is disabled, it is likely due to the fact the server requires a secure connection and one is not being used by IBM Sterling Control Center.
- Choose the Server and Version. Note: If you are unable to select the Server, it is likely due to the fact that the connection to server is not secure or the server is down.
- Click Create New from the overflow menu icon () above the grid.
- Select one or more Sterling Connect:Direct servers or server groups on which you want to import the certificates. Click Next.
- Take one of these steps:
- To identify all certificate information, select Enter Trusted Certificate details.
- To import a certificate that exists on another server, select Start from an existing Trusted Certificate on another server. Identify the server where the certificate is located and the name of the certificate.
- Enter the required details and click Next.
- Identify when the certificate is to be imported:
- Now to import the certificate immediately.
- Held for later to send the job to the job queue with a status of
Held.Note: Select Held for later if you are not ready to initiate the Import trusted certificate job.
- Schedule for later and then specify a time zone and date/time when the job is to run. This option sends the job to the job queue with a status of Scheduled.
