  I am installing a CUCM 7.1.3 server, and my customer has requested me to use a Third-Party certificate that they already have. The cert is issued for the name *

I have some doubts about installing it on the CCM Servers.

I have tried, and I cannot installing without generation a Certificate Server Request.

I tried to upload the cert after generating a CRS with the default values (i did not use "set web-security" yet) and it gave me an error of not matching the name on the certficate.

Does this CSR has to match with the info on the certificate I already have? Or it´s just that I have to configure the FQDN on the CCM server? (as <servername> Currently I use only IP addresses on CCM, with no DNS enabled. I am afraid I may break averything by enabling DNS.

Has anyone did this before?

CSR means "Certificate Signing Request".

The correct procedure is:

1) You generate a CSR from CUCM.

2) You send the CSR to CA (Certificate Authority)

3) CA generate a certificate based on CSR

4) You upload certificate to CUCM.
