How to Update the SSL Certificates for Aruba ClearPass


Certain Aruba ClearPass configurations may require a SSL certificate. If you need to install or update an existing SSL certificate follow these steps.

  1. Download the certificate from your provider. Make sure you grab any intermediate and root certificates applicable.
  2. Merge the server, intermediate(s), and root certificates into a single .crt file.
  3. Convert the .crt certificate to a PKCS#12 (.pfx) file. You'll need the private key password to complete this conversion and don't forget to apply an export password or Aruba ClearPass will refuse the import.
  4. Navigate to "Administration", "Certificates", "Certificate Store", and import the certificate twice, once for the RADIUS/EAP Server Certificate and once for the HTTPS Server Certificate.
  5. Once complete set a calendar reminder for when the certificate expires.
