As a security administrator, you can set up notifications to inform you when certificates are about to expire and to include information about which NetScaler instances use those certificates. By enabling notifications, you can renew your SSL certificates on time.
For example, you can set an email notification to be sent an email distribution list 30 days before your certificate is due to expire.
NetScaler MAS now sends SSL certificate expiry trap to external trap destination server when your SSL certificates are due for expiry. NetScaler MAS sends a trap when the following two conditions are satisfied:
- You have configured the number of days for the certificate expire in SSL dashboard settings page.
- You have added the trap destination.
You can set trap destinations by navigating to System > SNMP > Trap Destinations. Type the IP address of the destination SNMP server where the traps are sent. Enter the port number and type "public" (without quotes) as the community string.
