Updating Security Certificate

In this article

    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.
