    HowTo update Certificate on IP Camera's & VRM Servers

    When using Configuration Manager, each device has a status icon.

    The method below shows you how to generate an updated certificate for Bosch IP Camera's and VRM Servers

    Here we are talking about Certificates, the Icon is colored Yellow with an exclamation mark.

    • Using the mouse over Tooltip, the device is saying exactly what is wrong with the certificate connection.
      • VRM on a DIVAR IP 5000:Device_status.png
      • IP Camera:

      • Right click on the device to Show Certificates, if you wish to view them.

    • We can see that there are multiple things wrong.
      • The Cert is not Trusted
      • Inconsistent Date
      • Cert Name mismatch.
    • First is inconsistent date:
      • All IP devices and PC’s must be synchronized on Date time page (group General)

    • Second is invalid certificate
      • First quick look on certificate requirement level, navigate to Preferences -> Configuration Manager -> Access -> Security:

      • The certificate must just be valid - self signed certificate matching host name/IP address will be sufficient.

    • We need to generate a new certificate on Certificate page.
      • Clicking "Generate certificate" button:
        GenCert.png
      • should open a certificate creation dialog - most important options are matching common name and matching validity time.

    • After the certificate is created correct usage must be set as shown below:

    • To apply changes VRM must be restarted.

    If certificate requirement is higher,  then a validatable chain of certification must be used (This would be setup by a System Integrator or IT Administrator):

    • Trusted - the signing entity CA (e.g. VeriSign) must be trusted on target PC
    • Issued by this CA - There is a  Micro CA setup on this PC.
