request csr upload

request csr upload—Upload a certificate signing request (CSR) to the Viptela device (on vSmart controllers and vBond orchestrators only).

Command Syntax

request csr upload path [regen-rsa] [regen-uuid] [vpn vpn-id]

Options

Path to Certificate File
path
Upload the CSR in the file at the specified path. The path can be in a directory on the local device or on a remote device reachable through FTP, HTTP, SCP, or TFTP. If you are using SCP, you are prompted for the directory name and filename. No file path name is provided.
Regenerate RSA Key Pair
regen-rsa
Generate a new RSA public-private key pair. The RSA key pair is stored in the server.key file in the /usr/share/viptela directory on the local device.
Regenerate UUID
regen-uuid
Generate a new CSR with a unique UUID that is different from the previous UUID. You can specify this option only on a vBond orchestrator virtual machine (VM). The option is not available on vEdge router hardware, because the router's UUID is its chassis number.
Specific VPN
vpn vpn-id
VPN in which the CSR file is located. When you include this option, one of the interfaces in the specified VPN is used to retrieve the file. The interfaces on a vSmart controller are only in VPN 0, the VPN reserved for the control plane, so you can omit this option because vSmart images are always retrieved from VPN 0.

Output Fields

The output fields are self-explanatory.

Example Output

vSmart# request csr upload home/admin/vm9.csr
Uploading CSR via VPN 0
