SolarWinds N-Central - Certificate Installation

This manual is for SolarWinds N-Central. If you used our CSR Generation manual, you are able to follow this installation manual.

Immediately after being issued, your SSL certificate will be sent to you by email. It is also possible to download the certificate from the Control Panel. The file containing the certificate will have the same name as the domain name it is meant for (for example: www_sslcertificaten_nl.crt).

  1. After receiving your certificate you will need to combine it with it's corresponding root- and intermediate certificates. These can be downloaded here.
  2. Each type of certificate has a Certificate bundle, download it and open it with a text editor. Place your own certificate underneath it and save the file.
  3. Log into your SolarWinds N-Central appliance and navigate to Administration, Certificate Management, Upload and open the SSL tab. Upload the saved file, containing your certificate and the root- and intermediates, on this page.

All necessary steps to install your web server certificate have now been completed. Please make sure to adequately secure your certificate files, and to store a backup of your private key and web server certificate in a safe location. You should also install the root and intermediate certificates. Check whether the certificate is correctly installed with the SSLCheck and ensure an optimal configuration with these tips and settings.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you encounter problems or error messages.


Our SSLCheck will examine your website's root and intermediate certificates for correctness and report any potential issues
