Certificates are used to authenticate vEdge Cloud routers in the overlay network. Once authentication is complete, WAN Edge Cloud routers can establish secure sessions with other devices in the overlay network.
By default, vEdge Cloud certification authorization is automated. This is the recommended setting.
If you use third-party certificate authorization, configure certificate authorization to be manual:
- In vManage NMS, select the Administration ► Settings screen.
- Click the Edit button to the right of the vEdge Cloud Certificate Authorization bar.
- In the vEdge Cloud field, click Manual (Enterprise CA).
- Click Save.
Introduced in vManage NMS in Release 17.1.
