To install your SSL certificate, you will need to do the following:
Installing certificates from the certificate authority
Copy the certificate into each BIG-IP Controller in the redundant configuration. You can configure the accelerator with certificates using the Configuration utility or from the command line.
Install certificates using the Configuration Utility
In the navigation pane, click Proxies.
On the Proxies screen, click the Install SSL Certificate Request tab.
In the Certfile Name box, type the fully qualified domain name of the server with the file extension .crt.
Paste the text of the certificate into the install SSL Certificate window. Make sure you include the following:
Click the Write Certificate File button to install the certificate.
Install certificates from the certificate authority using the command line
Copy the certificate into the following directory on each BIG-IP Controller in a redundant system:
Please note: The certificate you receive from us should overwrite the temporary certificate generated by genkey or gencert.
If you used the genkey or gencert utilities to generate the request file, a copy of the corresponding key should already be in the following directory on the BIG-IP Controller:
Install the intermediate certificate using the command line
Copy the intermediate CA certificate into each BIG-IP Controller in a redundant system.
Open the intermediate CA certificate sent to you in the zip file attached to your email with a text editor.
Copy the entire text of the certificate, including the following:
Paste the text into a text editor and name it intermediate-ca.crt.
Place the intermediate-ca.crt file in the directory:
Please note: The ssl.crt directory is used to store certificates and certificate authorities.
WARNING: In a redundant system, the keys and certificates must be in place on both controllers before you configure the SSL Accelerator. You must do this manually; the configuration synchronization utilities do not perform this function.
