    How to 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

     

    Step-by-step guide

     

    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:

    • 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:

      • should open a certificate creation dialog - most important options are matching common name and matching validity time.

    • 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.
