Uploading the PCoIP Management Console Certificate to an Endpoint

If your endpoints are configured with a discovery method and security level that require them to have a PCoIP Management Console certificate in their trusted certificate store before they can connect to the PCoIP Management Console, you can either upload the PCoIP Management Console certificate for a group of endpoints using a PCoIP Management Console profile, or you can upload the PCoIP Management Console certificate locally using each endpoint’s AWI. Depending on your security requirements, you can upload either a PCoIP Management Console issuer certificate (that is, the root CA certificate (or intermediate certificate) that was used to issue a PCoIP Management Console server certificate) or you can upload the PCoIP Management Console server’s public key certificate.

For information on PCoIP Management Console certificates, see Managing PCoIP Management Console Certificates.

Uploading Endpoint PCoIP Management Console Certificates Using PCoIP Management Console

Note: All certificates should be in PEM format

All PCoIP Management Console certificates must be issued in PEM format.

To upload the PCoIP Management Console certificate for a group of endpoints using PCoIP Management Console:

  1. Ensure that the endpoints you wish to upload certificates to are placed in their own group. Depending on your site configuration, this may require modifications to your DHCP options or DNS SRV records, or it may require disabling persistent auto-configuration or placing the endpoints into a segregated network with a new PCoIP Management Console.

  2. From the PCoIP Management Console home page, click the PROFILES tab.

  3. Click Add New.

  4. Enter a name and description and then click Save.

  5. In the Profile Management page, click the profile’s Set Properties link.

  6. Scroll down to the profile’s Certificate Store section and click Add New.

  7. Click Browse, select your PCoIP Management Console certificate file (.pem), and then click **Add*.

  8. From the main menu, click the GROUPS tab.

  9. In the Group Management page, click the Edit link for group containing your endpoints.

  10. Select the profile you created in the Profile drop-down list and click Save.

  11. Click the Apply Profile link for the group containing your endpoints.

  12. Enter the date and time to apply your profile in the Apply Profile at Date/Time**text box and then click **OK.

Tip: Using the PCoIP Zero Client AWI

You can upload the PCoIP Management Console Certificate to an endpoint using the endpoint’s AWI.
