You must download the CA-signed SSL certificate that is installed on the intermediate server so that it can be imported into the external-facing View servers.

1

Connect to the intermediate server and find the SSL certificates that are presented to clients sending HTTPS requests.

2

Find and download the SSL certificate that is used for View.

This example uses F5 BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) as an intermediate server. The example is intended to give you a general idea of how you might download a certificate from your own intermediate server.

Important

These steps are specific to F5 BIG-IP LTM and may not apply to new releases or other F5 products. The steps do not apply to other vendors' intermediate servers.

Before you start, verify that the F5 BIG-IP LTM system is deployed with View. Check that you completed the tasks in the F5 deployment guide, Deploying the BIG-IP LTM System with VMware View, located at http://www.f5.com/pdf/deployment-guides/f5-vmware-view-dg.pdf.

1

Connect to the F5 BIG-IP LTM configuration utility.

2

On the Main tab of the navigation pane, expand Local Traffic and click SSL certificates.

The utility displays a list of certificates that are installed on the system.

3

In the Name column, click the name of the certificate that is used for View.

4

At the bottom of the screen, click Export.

The utility displays the existing SSL certificate in the Certificate Text box.

5

From the Certificate File setting, click Download file_name.

The SSL certificate is downloaded as a CRT file.
