Info Type: Tip
- Move any existing keys:
# mkdir /root/ZMC_old_certs # mv /opt/zmanda/amanda/apache2/conf/certs/* /root/ZMC_old_certs
- Create a public/private key pair by entering the commands shown in bold below. Enter a secure passphrase (at least 8 characters, alphanumeric) when prompted. You must enter the same key twice for verification:
# cd /opt/zmanda/amanda/apache2/conf/certs # /opt/zmanda/amanda/common/bin/openssl genrsa -des3 -out ZMC-server.key 1024 Generating RSA private key, 1024 bit long modulus ................++++++ . .......................................................++++++ e is 65537 (0x10001) Enter pass phrase for ZMC-server.key: Verifying - Enter pass phrase for ZMC-server.key:
- Create a certificate signing request. Answer any prompts as they are displayed.
# /opt/zmanda/amanda/common/bin/openssl req -new -key ZMC-server.key -out ZMC-server.csr Enter pass phrase for ZMC-server.key: You are about to be asked to enter information that will be incorporated into your certificate request. What you are about to enter is what is called a Distinguished Name or a DN. There are quite a few fields but you can leave some blank For some fields there will be a default value, If you enter '.', the field will be left blank. ----- Country Name (2 letter code) [GB]:CA State or Province Name (full name) [Berkshire]:Sunnyvale Locality Name (eg, city) [Newbury]:Sunnyvale Organization Name (eg, company) [My Company Ltd]:Zmanda.Inc Organizational Unit Name (eg, section) :support Common Name (eg, your name or your server's hostname) :ZMC Email Address :firstname.lastname@example.org Please enter the following 'extra' attributes To be sent with your certificate request A challenge password :zmanda An optional company name :zmanda
- Generate a self-signed certificate. When prompted for a passphrase enter the passphrase that you entered during key creation. The example shows creating a certificate that lasts for five years (1825 days); you can enter a different value if desired.
# /opt/zmanda/amanda/common/bin/openssl x509 -req -days 1825 -in ZMC-server.csr -signkey ZMC-server.key -out ZMC-server.crt Signature ok subject=/C=CA/ST=Sunnyvale/L=Sunnyvale/O=Zmanda.Inc/OU=support/CN=ZMC/ emailAddressemail@example.com Getting Private key Enter pass phrase for ZMC-server.key:
- The certificate should be changed to use a key with no passphrase to avoid being prompted for the password and to allow for integration with ZMC. When prompted for a passphrase enter the passphrase that you entered during key creation. The example shows removing a passphrase from previously created certificate.
# mv ZMC-server.key ZMC-server.key.has-passphrase # /opt/zmanda/amanda/common/bin/openssl rsa -in ZMC-server.key.has-passphrase -out ZMC-server.key
- Change permissions so the key can only be read by root.
# chmod 400 ZMC-server.key
- Restart the ZMC. Enter the passphrase when prompted.
