When a new container is created using navcontainerhelper, if the -useSSL flag is used, a self-signed certificate is created and the url to the certificate file is retrieved.
How to download and install the self-signed certificate after creating the container, using Powershell commands?
$containername = 'bccontainer' $outputCertFilePath = 'C:\Temp\' + $containername + '_Certificate.cer' # Download the certificate from container $url = 'http://' + $containername + ':8080/certificate.cer' Invoke-WebRequest -Uri $url -OutFile $outputCertFilePath # Import downloaded certificate to trusted root Import-Certificate -FilePath $outputCertFilePath -CertStoreLocation 'Cert:\LocalMachine\Root' -Verbose
Now the browser can be closed, if opened, and opened again. The certificate is installed and the browser won’t complain about it.
Please feel free to leave your comments.
