Importing Certificates from PFX Files

You can import a TLS certificate in the following situations:

  • Your organization uses a TLS certificate signed by a CA and you have a copy of this certificate in a file of PFX format.
  • You have generated a self-signed TLS certificate in the PFX format with a third-party tool and you want to import it to Veeam Backup & Replication.


Importing Certificates from PFX Files Important

Consider the following:

  • The TLS certificate must pass validation on the SP Veeam backup server. In the opposite case, you will not be able to import the TLS certificate.
  • If a PFX file contains a certificate chain, only the end entity certificate will be imported.

To import a TLS certificate from a PFX file:

  1. Open the Cloud Connect view.
  2. Click the Cloud node in the inventory pane and click Manage Certificates in the working area. You can also right-click the Cloud Connect node in the inventory pane and select Manage certificates.
  3. At the Certificate Type step of the wizard, choose Import certificate from a file.
