In this chapter, we discussed how to use native Windows OS features to create certificate requests and generate certificates, and how the new certificates are imported and enabled.

We also learned how to request a certificate with SAN, which allows us to add additional DNS names and even IP addresses to a certificate, an option typically required for Horizon Security Servers, Access Points, and App Volumes Manager servers.

Next we learned how to convert a certificate from PFX to PEM format, which is required when you wish to use it with Horizon Access Point and App Volumes Manager appliances.

Finally, we learned how to replace the SSL certificates in each of the Horizon servers, as well as the App Volumes Manager appliances.

In the next chapter, we will discuss how to use Horizon PowerCLI to perform administrative tasks, and configuration tasks, using the command line, which is useful for customers who have a desire to automate as much of their infrastructure as they can.
