How to Generate a CSR on a Nutanix Cluster

In this step-by-step tutorial, we will show you how to generate a CSR on Nutanix cluster. We’ll use the OpenSSL utility.

Please, follow the steps below:

Run the following command line to set the location of your OpenSSL configuration file:

Set OPENSSL_CONF=C:\OpenSSL-Win64\bin\openssl.cfg

Your openssl.cfg file should look like this:

[ req ] default_bits = 2048
default_keyfile = key.pem
distinguished_name = req_distinguished_name
encrypt_key = no
prompt = no
string_mask = nombstr
req_extensions = v3_req[ v3_req ] basicConstraints = CA:FALSE
keyUsage = digitalSignature, keyEncipherment
extendedKeyUsage = serverAuth, clientAuth
subjectAltName = Add alternative domains here[ req_distinguished_name ] 0.organizationName = Your Organization Name
organizationalUnitName = Your Unit Name
commonName = The Fully-qualified domain name you want to secure
countryName = US
stateOrProvinceName = California
localityName = San Jsoe

Note: Replace the parts in bold with your actual contact data

Run the command below to generate your CSR and Private key:

openssl req -new -nodes -out yoursitename.csr -config openssl.cfg -sha256

Now, you can open your newly generated CSR file with any text editor of your choice. You’ll have to copy-paste its whole content, including the BEGIN header and END footer into the corresponding field on your SSL vendor’s ordering page.

Alternatively, you can use an easier option and generate your CSR code automatically, with the help of our CSR Generator tool.
