Uploading and installing an HTTPS Certificate

Installing an HTTPS Certificate puts SD-WAN Center into Maintenance Mode until the operation is complete. When the operation is complete, the web server is restarted, invalidating all connected sessions. If the connection to the server is lost when the web server is restarted, the maintenance mode screen automatically reloads the previous page and displays a security notice from the browser. If the screen does not reload, click Continue to reload the previous page.

To upload and install the HTTPS certificate:

  1. In the SD-WAN Center web interface, click the Administration tab.
  2. Click Global Settings and then click HTTPS Certificates.

Regenerating the HTTPS Certificate

You can regenerate a self-signed certificate that secures the Management HTTPS connection to SD-WAN Center. Regenerating the HTTPS Certificate puts SD-WAN Center into Maintenance Mode until the operation is complete. When the operation is complete, the web server is restarted, invalidating all connected sessions.

If the connection to the server is lost when the web server is restarted, the maintenance mode screen automatically reloads the previous page and displays a security notice from the browser. If the screen does not appear, click Continue to reload the previous page.
