Question
X9DRW-IF Is there any rules about generating SSL certificates which we can upload to the IPMI? How do we create this SSL certificate? We tried to upload the 2048bit certificate from his other project and gets error below. This cert. was not created via generator in the IPMI web interface.

" The SSL certificate validation failed. Please try to upload the certificate and key again."
Answer
Here are the instructions:



openssl genrsa -out pvt.pem 1024

openssl req -new -key pvt.pem -out crt.pem

openssl x509 -req -days 365 -in crt.pem -signkey pvt.pem -out crt.pem
