I am creating new certificates for my vservers. The first ones went ok, but now I get the error message "Failed to store the certificates". Anyone know why?
I have cdot 9.0.
nrk-cl1::*> security certificate create -vserver nrk-cl1-01 -common-name nrk-cl1-01.cert -type server -size 2048 -country US -state "" -locality "" -organization "" -unit "" -email-addr "firstname.lastname@example.org" -expire-days 3650 -hash-function SHA256
Error: command failed: Failed to store the certificates.
I have also tried common name without .cert.
Or is cluster certificate enough? If so, why are there certificates for every vserver?
See The Solution
If your system has a node-based certificate, you do not have to renew it
because all SSL connections in the cluster are now using the cluster-based
certificate for authentication.
It may be due to the bug http://mysupport.netapp.com/NOW/cgi-bin/bol?Type=Detail&Display=918794

The cluster certificate is sufficient. Error can be ignored.
