CUSTOMER ADVISORY: HP MSA 2040 and 1040 SAN Storage and HP P2000 G3 MSA Array Systems - Using HTTPs May Need to Reinstall a Valid Certificate After Upgrading to GL210R004 and TS252R007

Release Date: 2015-08-13

Last Updated: 2015-08-13


DESCRIPTION

With the release of firmware versions GL210R004 and TS252R007, the HP Storage MSA 2040, MSA 1040 and P2000 G3 MSA Arrays using HTTPs may need to install or re-install a valid certificate after upgrading firmware to GL210R004 and TS252R007. This is due to increased security enhancements and fixes incorporated into the latest firmware versions for both arrays due to heightened security risks and concerns seen by customers on the internet.

SCOPE

The following products are affected by this issue:

  • HP MSA 2040 SAN Storage

  • HP MSA 1040 SAN Storage

  • HP P2000 G3 MSA Array Systems

RESOLUTION

Use CLI/telnet to regenerate the system certificate with a new private key:

  1. # create certificate unique

  2. Restart both Management Controllers to have the new security certificate take effect.

You can also use FTP to install a self-signed certificate.

  1. ftp controller-network-address

    For example:

    ftp 10.1.0.9

    Log in as a user who has permission to use the FTP interface.

  2. Enter: put certificate-file-name cert-file

    Where certificate-file-name is the name of the certificate file for your specific system.

  3. Enter put key-file-name cert-key-file

    Where key-file-name is the name of the security key file for your specific system.

  4. Restart both management controllers to have the new security certificate take effect.
