Updating Security Certificate

Security certificate ensures secure connection with Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager over HTTPS. During the Enterprise Manager installation, you can select an existing certificate or generate a new self-signed certificate. This certificate will be also used by Veeam plug-in for vSphere Web Client and REST API client to receive data using HTTPS protocol.

  • To update the Enterprise Manager certificate, you can use Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager. For more information, see this Microsoft Docs article.

If you want to use a certificate obtained from a Certificate Authority, make sure that the fully qualified domain name of the Enterprise Manager server is specified in the certificate subject or subject alternative name.

  • To update the Enterprise Manager REST API certificate, use the netsh command. For more information, see the TLS Certificate section of the Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager REST API Reference.
