Need some help figuring out what kind of certificate to generate for some HP Procurve switches. In the past we've just generated a self-signed certificate and were able to manage them via a browser no problem. Now most browsers dont like these kind of certificates.
We tried generating a cert but it requires a host and domain name. coreswitch.domain.com
We browse to these devices via https://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
so the cert is valid but doesn't match the address we're browsing to and we get a certificate warning.
Is there a way to base it off the IP address of the device? Or do i need to create a dns entry for these devices?
