PositiveSSL Certificate Installation: Novell ConsoleONE

May 25, 2018 in Utility and SHA 1

Installing your Certificate on Novell ConsoleOne

You will be receiving the following four files from Sectigo:

  • Root AddTrustExternalCARoot.crt
  • Intermediate CA UTNAddTrustServerCA.crt
  • Intermediate CA PositiveSSLCA.crt
  • domain/site certificate yourdomainname.crt
  • or You can download the Positive ssl Root and Intermediate files from here.

The file must be in PKCS #7 format in order to be imported into a Server Certificate object.

  • The file must contain all of the certificates to be imported into
  • the object (the root-level CA certificate(AddTrustExternalCARoot.crt)
  • the intermediate CA certificates(UTNAddTrustServerCA.crt and PositiveSSLCA.crt)
  • and the server certificate.

The method to view the subject is to

  • double click the certificate that we sent you
  • then click on the 'Detail' tab
  • and go to the 'Subject' area.

Steps to successfully install the Certificates:

  • Import both the 'Intermediate CA certificate' and 'Root certificate' into Internet Explorer.
  • Do this by double clicking on each of the certificates and choosing 'Import'.

note: /br>Please make sure they are imported into the correct stores

  • the 'UTNAddTrustServerCA.crt and PositiveSSLCA.crt' goes into the 'Intermediate' store
  • the 'AddTrustExternalCARoot.crt' goes into the 'Root' store.
  • Double click the certificate that was signed by Sectigo (which was the server/domain certificate you received from us),
  • go to the 'Details' tab, then click on 'Copy to File'.
  • Next, Select 'Cryptographic Message Syntax Standard - PKCS #7 Certificates (.P7B)' and select the 'Include all certificates in the certification path if possible' check box.
  • Give it a file name, for example 'c:\\mycert'.
    • This step will put all four certificates -- the Trusted Root, Intermediate Root's, and End Server Certificate -- into one certificate.
  • Go to Console One and to the certificate that created the Certificate Signing Request (CSR).
  • Go to the 'Public Key Certificate' Tab.
  • Select 'Import',
  • Select 'No Trusted Root Certificate available'
  • Click 'Next'
  • Import the Server Certificate that you created in step (2.) above which we gave the example name of 'c:\\mycert'.
  • After the import you should be able to validate the certificate and use the certificate.
  • The certificate is now ready to use.
