Configure WebGUI certificate from CLI (PanOS 9.0)

Dear all,

lost access to the WebGUI.

opaque: websrvr: Exited 4 times, waiting 1770 seconds to retry

 

Before that I received another email from the firewall:

opaque: Shared certificate xxx and corresponding key have expired.

(OK, I know, my fault)

 

So I suspect that this is the reason for the web server failing.

 

All instructions I found so far talk about issuing a new self-signed certificate from the WebGUI.

 

How do I do that from the CLI?

 

request certificate generate name "paab.xyz.local" certificate-name "paabself" algorithm RSA 2048

returns

Invalid syntax

 

Regards,

    Andreas

You're just missing the rsa-nbits part of the command.

request certificate generate name "paab.xyz.local" certificate-name "paabself" algorithm RSA rsa-nbits 2048

Thanks, wasn't really clear from the CLI TAB expansion.

 

I managed to get it working again by following the steps in:
