Customer Support > Generate CSR > F5 Big IP

To generate a Certificate Signing Request (CSR), perform the following steps:

You must create a SSL configuration file, before generating a CSR. This can be completed by running the following command:

# /usr/local/bin/genconf

When you run this command, the Big-IP will ask for your company information.

Country Name (2 letter code) [AU]:GB
State or Province Name (full name) [Some-State]:London
Locality Name (eg, city) []:London
Organization Name (eg, company) [Internet Widgits Pty Ltd]:Global Sign
Organizational Unit Name (eg, section) []:IT
Common Name (eg, YOUR name) []:www.globalsign.net (Must be the Fully Qualifed Domain Name)
Email Address - Leave blank
Challenge Password - Leave blank
Retype Password - Leave blank

Run the following command to generate a new certificate request:

# /usr/local/bin/genkey www.yourdomain.com

Be sure to replace www.yourdomain.com with your Common name - FQDN (Fully Qualifed domain name). You will be prompted again for your company information during this step.

Country Name (2 letter code) [AU]:GB
State or Province Name (full name) [Some-State]:London
Locality Name (eg, city) []:London
Organization Name (eg, company) [Internet Widgits Pty Ltd]:Global Sign
Organizational Unit Name (eg, section) []:IT
Common Name (eg, YOUR name) []:www.globalsign.net (Must be the FQDN - Fully Qualifed Domain Name)

The CSR will be stored in the following: /config/bigconfig/ssl.crt/Fully Qualified Domain Name.crt

Copy the entire contents of the CSR, insuring to include

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE REQUEST-----
and
-----END CERTIFICATE REQUEST-----
