Configuring printer certificates manually

When not using the automated certificate management feature, MVE can help facilitate the process of signing the default printer certificate on a fleet of printers. MVE gathers the certificate signing requests from the fleet, and then deploys the signed certificates to the proper printers after they are signed.

A system administrator must do the following:

  1. Generate the printer certificate signing requests.

    1. From the Printers menu, click Printer Listing.

    2. Select one or more printers.

    3. Click Security > Generate printer certificate signing requests.

    Note:  This process lets only one printer certificate signing request to exist on the server at a time. If another request is generated, then the previous request is overwritten. Make sure to download the existing request before generating a new one.

  2. Wait for the task to finish, and then download the printer certificate signing requests.

    1. From the Printers menu, click Printer Listing.

    2. Click Security > Download printer certificate signing requests.

  3. Use a trusted CA to sign the certificate signing requests.

  4. Save the signed certificates in a ZIP file.

    Note:  All the signed certificates must be in the root location of the ZIP file. Otherwise, MVE cannot parse the file.

  5. From the Printers menu, click Printer Listing.

  6. Select one or more printers.

  7. Click Configure > Deploy file to printers.

  8. Click Choose File, and then browse to the ZIP file.

  9. In the File type menu, select Printer Certificates.

  10. Click Deploy File.
