  • Cannot enable self signed certificate:
::*> security ssl modify -vserver Cluster-01 -server-enabled true -ca Cluster-01 -client-enabled false -serial XXXXXXXX -common-name Cluster-01

Warning: The certificate Cluster-01 is a self-signed certificate, which offers no verification of identity by client machines. This presents the risk of
         man-in-the-middle attacks by malicious third-parties.
