Cannot manage a storage device due to an invalid SSL/TSL certificate

Use this information to troubleshoot issues when managing storage arrays.

Each device has a self-signed SSL certificate that Lenovo XClarity Administrator uses to communicate with the device through HTTPS. This certificate has a common name (CN) that identifies the host name (or IP address) that is associated with the certificate. The common name represents the name that is protected by the SSL certificate, and the certificate is valid only if the request hostname matches the certificate common name. Therefore, if the IP address of the storage array is changed, the existing certificate becomes invalid, and XClarity Administrator cannot manage it due to an invalid SSL/TSL certificate.
