Creating certificate bundles on the Quorum Witness server

Create two certificate bundles so that the Quorum Witness (QW) server can authenticate the Quorum Witness client. Perform the following steps on the server where Quorum Witness will be installed.

  1. Log in as the root user to the Quorum Witness server.
  2. Confirm that the following files are in the /root directory.
    ls -l *.pem
    [root@vm1234 ~]# ls -l *.pem
    -rw-r--r--  1 root root     1438 May 23 09:35
    -rw-r--r--  1 root root     1021 May 23 09:17
    -rw-r--r--  1 root root     1675 May 23 09:11
    -rw-r--r--  1 root root     1290 May 23 08:43 RootCA_cert.pem
  3. Create a file called cert.pem in the /root directory that contains the following files:
    • {SYSTEM_QW}.key.pem

    • {SYSTEM_QW}_cert.pem

    • RootCA_cert.pem

    For example: cat RootCA_cert.pem > cert.pem.
