export certificate

export certificate


The export certificate command is used to generate private key and certificate requests based on application scenarios and export the certificate requests for subsequent signature and certificate import.


export certificate ip=? user=? password=? type=? certificate_path=? [ port=? ] [ protocol=? ] [ algorithm=? ]





ip=? IP address of the FTP/SFTP server.


user=? User allowed by the FTP/SFTP server.

The value contains 1 to 64 characters without colons (:).

password=? Password of a user allowed by the FTP/SFTP server.

The value contains 1 to 64 characters.

type=? Certificate type.

The value can be:

  • "key_management_center": key management center.
  • "domain_authentication": domain authentication.
  • "hypermetro_arbitration": HyperMetro arbitration.
  • "https_protocol": HTTPS protocol.
  • "ftps_protocol": FTPS protocol.
  • "syslog_authentication": SYSLOG server authentication.
  • "domain_authentication_extension_1": domain authentication extension 1.
  • "domain_authentication_extension_2": domain authentication extension 2.
  • "domain_authentication_extension_3": domain authentication extension 3.
certificate_path=? Path for storing the certificate file on the FTP/SFTP server.

The value is a character string that ends with file name extension ".csr" (case insensitive). The file name must be supported by the FTP and SFTP server.

port=? Port of the FTP/SFTP server.

The value is an integer ranging from 1 to 65535.

  • If protocol=FTP, the default value is "21".
  • If protocol=SFTP, the default value is "22".
protocol=? Protocol used for transmitting the new certificate and private key.

The value can be "FTP" or "SFTP" and the default value is "SFTP".

algorithm=? Encryption algorithm.

The value can be:

  • "RSA_2048": RSA encryption algorithm. The key contains 2048 bits.
  • "RSA_4096": RSA encryption algorithm. The key contains 4096 bits.
  • "ECC_256": ECC encryption algorithm. The key contains 256 bits.
The default value is "RSA_2048".



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 arrays, 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", "domain_authentication", "hypermetro_arbitration", "https_protocol", "ftps_protocol", "syslog_authentication", "domain_authentication_extension_1", "domain_authentication_extension_2", or "domain_authentication_extension_3".
  • Storage systems can correctly access the FTP server or SFTP server over the network.
  • The FTP or SFTP service has been enabled on the server.
  • 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.

admin:/>export certificate ip= user=admin password=****** type=key_management_center certificate_path=/temp.csr protocol=SFTP port=22 algorithm=RSA_2048
