This document explains how a third party signed SSL certificate can be imported for the 10g/11g Grid Agent URL. This certificate will be used for the following channels of communication:

-  OMS to Grid Agent.
-  When Metric browser of this Agent is launched from a browser.

This document is applicable only to EM 11g Grid Control.For EM 12c/13c, refer to document below
EM 13c, 12c: How to Configure the Enterprise Manager Management Agent for Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Certificates (<>)


The steps in this document have to be followed on each Agent machine where the default certificate used by the Agent needs to be modified to a 3rd party certificate.


-  It is not possible to configure a and below version of the Agent to use third party SSL certificates. This support is available from Agent onwards.

-  For a Agent, before using the steps in this document apply the one-off <Patch 9019231> to the Agent Home. Refer to the patch README for instructions.

-  Also, and Agent does not support a self-signed (default OEM certificate) SSL certificate with 1024 bit key length. If the requirement is to use a SSL certificate with 1024 bit key length, then a SSL certificate signed by a third party Certificate Authority should be used.

-  The 11g Agent supports only MD5/SHA1 algorithm and upto 2048 bit key length.

For importing third party certificates into the OMS, refer to the steps listed in
