Last updated on JANUARY 04, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle FS1-2 Flash Storage System - Version 6.1 to 6.2 [Release 6.1 to 6.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Purpose

This document provides details about the SSL certificates that are used in Oracle Flash Storage System.

SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser.  SSL is an industry standard and is used by millions of websites in the protection of their online transactions with their customers.

Note: The FS1-2 is shipped with a Server Certificate that is created and signed by Oracle. If this certificate does not meet your security requirements, you may create your own certificate or purchase one from a recognized Certificate Authority (CA).
Note: Certificates should only be generated in plain text format.
Note: The FS1 can only use Certificate files with the .crt extension, Key files can remain with the .key extension.

 

VERY IMPORTANT (upgrade to 6.2.22 and higher):  If customer has purchased a server certificate [or created one for their own requirements] they must make sure they have a safe copy before upgrading to 6.2.22 or higher. This also applies to all upgrades from 6.2.22 to any future release.The upgrade to 6.2.22 or higher will delete any existing certificate and replace it with one generated by the system.That default certificate will appear on all ports until a certificate is uploaded again.  When ever you upload a new certificate the Pilot will restart to apply the new certificate.

Use fscli to save any purchased or other non-default certificate before an upgrade to 6.2.22 or higher.

If no certificate is uploaded, the FS System will create a new default on every upgrade and that certificate will be used across all of the ports.
