Description

ONTAP uses self-signed certificates by default for SSL management access.  Those certificates have expiration dates.  To stay current with self-signed SSL certificates a recreation/renewal process is needed.  This article details one method through the NetApp.ONTAP PowerShell toolkit.

Script Process
  1. Connecting to a cluster
  2. Collecting all existing certificates
  3. Ensuring the certificate is self-signed
  4. Creates a new certificate with the same properties as the previous one with a 10 year expiration
  5. Configures SSL on the SVM to use the new certificate
  6. Deletes the previous self-signed certificate
