Usually I don’t bother installing appropriate (i.e. public/proper) HTTPS/SSL-certificates for management softwares and other “internal” software. However, making parts of Cisco Prime Infrastructure available for “outsiders” can be quite useful, hence I saw the need to install a proper certificate.
I recently had to do this while installing Cisco Prime Infrastructure 3.0, so I thought I’d document it, since it’s not as straight-forward as one would think. The last time I did the procedure, was after installing Prime Infrastructure 2.0 almost 2 years ago.
There are basically three steps;
1) Fetch CA + properly convert the certificate
2) Install the CA certificates
3) Install the actual certificate
