Extracting the CA Certificate using OpenSSL

You can extract the CA certificate using OpenSSL.


  1. To create a CA certificate, execute the following command:

    openssl s_client -connect your.dsm.name.com:8443 –showcerts

    The command output appears on the screen. The second block of base-64 encoded text (between the “-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----“ and the “-----END CERTIFICATE -----“) is the certificate of interest.

  2. Copy the certificate text into the file.
  3. Copy the file to CommServe machine.
