export certificate

export certificate


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


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






IP address of the FTP/SFTP server.



User allowed by the FTP/SFTP server.

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


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

The value contains 1 to 64 characters.


Certificate type.

Possible values are:

  • "key_management_center": key management center.
  • "device_management": device management.
  • "domain_authentication": domain authentication.
  • "hypermetro_arbitration": HyperMetro arbitration.
  • "syslog_authentication": Syslog server authentication.
  • "remote_om_link": remote OM link.


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).


Port of the FTP/SFTP server.

The value is an integer from 1 to 65535.

  • If protocol=FTP, the default value is "21".
  • If protocol=SFTP, the default value is "22".


Protocol used for transmitting the new certificate and private key.

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


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 keys and certificate request files for device management storage arrays, domain authentication storage array, and Syslog server authentication storage arrays.
  • This command can only be used to export certificate request files 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", "syslog_authentication", or "remote_om_link".


  • 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.
