Hi Experts,

I'm about to renew one of the  expired certificate for my vserver. And I need to know if there will be an impact of deleting and creating a new certificate  since my SVM are consist of  multiple  production volumes / datastore ? Please advise. Is this going to be uninterrupted? Thanks!

Hi,

 

An SVM certificate is not used by their clients to access data. So you are good renewing it, recreating and etc... you can see that even expired, that's not an issue.
