If you want to use the Dell iDrac with a certificate signed by your CA, the web gui allows you to create a CSR, and upload the signed certificate. But if for some reason you want to generate the certificate and key outside of iDrac, the gui doesn’t offer a way to upload the key.
There is a way to use fully custom certificates, but it requires the
racadm command line utility. Assuming you have generated the certificate, here are the steps:
Upload the CA cert:
racadm -r 18.104.22.168 -i sslcertupload -f c:\path\to\ca.crt -t 2
Upload the cert key:
racadm -r 22.214.171.124 -i sslkeyupload -f c:\path\to\the_cert.key -t 1
Upload the cert:
racadm -r 126.96.36.199 -i sslcertupload -f c:\path\to\the_cert.crt -t 1
If you are using intermediate CAs,
ca.crt should contain all the CA chain, starting with the root one.
