"key_management_center": key management center.

"device_management": device management.

"domain_authentication": domain authentication.

"hypermetro_arbitration": HyperMetro arbitration.

"https_protocol": HTTPS protocol.

"ftps_protocol": FTPS protocol.

"syslog_authentication": SYSLOG server authentication.

certificate_path=? Path for storing the certificate file on the FTP/SFTP server.

Usage Guidelines

  • This command can be used to generate private key and certificate requests for key management storage arrays, device management storage arrays, domain authentication storage array, HyperMetro arbitration storage arrays, HTTPS protocol storage arrays, FTPS protocol storage arrays, and SYSLOG server authentication storage arrays.
  • This command can only be used to export certificate requests from a storage system to the FTP or SFTP server connected to the storage system.
  • The certificate type supported by this command can be "key_management_center", "device_management", "domain_authentication", "hypermetro_arbitration", "https_protocol", "ftps_protocol", or "syslog_authentication".
Prerequisites: 1:Storage systems can correctly access the FTP server or SFTP server over the network. 2:The FTP or SFTP service has been enabled on the server. 3:A directory has been created for storing security certificates.

If a storage system serves as a server in the file transfer with external systems, the storage system supports SFTP only. If a storage system serves as a client, the storage system supports both FTP and SFTP.


Generate and export certificate requests based on application scenarios.
