Procedure

  1. List the host certificate fingerprint for the Master’s host certificate by going to the Virtual card section on the host details page for the Master.
Copy the fingerprint to a file.
  1. If you have more than one BoKS domain, you can save the host certificate fingerprint for each Master in the domain in the same file.
The file should be formatted with one host certificate fingerprint per line.
  1. Save the fingerprint file on the pre-registered host.
  2. When you set up the host as a BoKS Server Agent for Unix/Linux, use the option -A FINGERPRINT= to direct the setup program to authenticate using the fingerprint file.
For example:
/opt/boksm/sbin/setup -a -A USER=user_to_log HOST=hostname FILE=path_to_parameters_file FINGEPRINT=path_to_fingerprint_file client
Alternatively you can add the FINGERPRINT parameter to the parameters file you specify with the FILE variable.
