Opened: Jun 16, 2020
Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

When you generate a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) for the device management interface, the CSR is stored on the files system in the wrong location. It is stored in /config/ssl/ssl.csr/, when the other device (management interface) items are stored in /config/httpd/conf/ssl.crt and /config/httpd/confg/ssl.key. The /config/ssl/ssl.* folders appear to be where certs and keys (distributed with the system) are intended to be stored.

Impact

Potential confusion about where the files are stored if needed during troubleshooting. It appears that all needed parts of the GUI look in the same, incorrect place for the file.

Conditions

Generating a CSR in the GUI for a device certificate.

Workaround

None.
