Firewall PA-220 Replacing default localhost SSL certificate

I created Certificate request, generated SSL certificate to match IP address of my Palo Alto firewall (CN=management IP) and uploaded cert following this guide:


Then created new SSL/TLS profile, in Deice-Setup in Secure Communication settings:Certificate type: Local, Certificate: name of imported certificate

In general setting for SSL/TLS profile specified profile i just created


When in browser i type https://IP i'm getting certificate warning, and firewall still uses default SSL (issued by localhost)

How to replace default SSL certificate with one i just uploaded and specified in SSL/TLS profile ?
