Creating a CSR (Certificate Signing Request)

Log in as smeconfiguser then become root

openssl req -new -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -out -keyout -subj "/C=US/ST=MyState/L=MyCity/O=MyOrganization/OU=MyOrganizationalUnit/"

This will generate 2 files:

Copy the file to the private certs folder

cp /etc/pki/tls/private/

Ensure the file is in the proper location before deleting it:

cat /etc/pki/tls/private/


Send the CSR to the Certificate Authority of choice


The certificate authority will reply with a signed public key and intermediary certs. These can be uploaded to the File Fabric when configuring via smeconfigserver.
