System administrators can import a custom DB Name Server SSL key and certificate to replace the key and certificate automatically generated by Data Director.

Verify that you have a custom SSL key and certificate available.


Click System Settings.


Expand Other Settings and click Security.


In the SSL Configuration section, right-click DB Name Server and select Import.

A warning advises you that the DB Name Server automatically restarts after the new key assignment completes.


Click OK.


In the Import window, select a keystore type, and type a keystore password, a key alias, and a key password.


Click Browse and navigate to your custom keystore file.


Click Next and select the Custom Certificates tab.

The text box shows the certificate chain automatically imported from the key store for the selected key.


Verify that the certificate chain is complete and in the correct sequence, including the root certificate authority (CA) and all intermediate CAs, with the root CA at the bottom of the certificate list.

If the certificate chain in the key store does not fulfill the requirements, use the Upload, Delete, down, and up buttons to customize it. Only the DER encoded certificate is supported.


Click Finish to import the custom key and certificate.

Progress of custom certificate configuration for the DB Name Server, and of tasks that distribute the DB Name Server root certificate authority (CA) to the DBVMs, appear in the right panel.

The custom key and certificate pair is applied.
