efa certificate device install

Installs HTTPS and OAuth2 certificates on SLX devices.


efa certificate device install [ --ip ip-addr| --fabricfabric-name| --certType { https | token }| --https-certificate| --https-key| --force ]

Command Default

By default, certificates are not installed.


--ip ip-addr
Specifies a comma-separated list of the IP addresses of the SLX devices on which you want to install the certificate.
Specifies the name of the fabric.
--certType { https | token }
Specifies the type of certificate you are installing. If you do not specify a type, this command creates both types.
Specifies the file name of the certificate.
Specifies the file name of the certificate key.
Update the certificate even if it is already present.

Usage Guidelines

During the registration of an SLX device in EFA, the following configuration changes are made on the device.
  • The public certificate for verifying an EFA token is copied to the device as an OAuth2 certificate.
  • EFA generates the HTTPS certificate for the SLX device. The certificate is copied to the device, HTTP mode is turned off on the device, and HTTPS is enabled on the device.
  • OAuth2 is enabled as the primary mode of authentication. Fallback is set to "local login."

You can use the efa inventory device list command to verify the status of the certificates on the device. If the Cert/Key Saved column contains "N," then certificates are not installed. You can then use the efa certificates device install command to install the certificates.


This example installs the HTTPS certificate on two devices.
