7.6. Setting up Additional Subsystems
After you have installed the root Certificate Authority (CA) as described in Section 7.4, “Setting Up a Root Certificate Authority”, you can install additional Certificate System subsystems.
All additional subsystems require a root Certificate Authority (CA). If you have not installed a root Certificate System CA, see Section 7.4, “Setting Up a Root Certificate Authority”.
Installing the Subsystem
To set up an additional subsystem, you have the following options:
- Configuration file-based installation:Use this method for high-level customization. This installation method uses a configuration file that overrides the default installation parameters.You can install Certificate System using a configuration file in a single step or in two steps. For details and examples, see:
- The pkispawn(8) man page for the single-step installation.
- Section 7.7, “Two-step Installation” for the two-step installation.
- Interactive installation:Use the interactive installer if you only want to set the minimum of required configuration options.For example:
# pkispawn -s subsystemReplace subsystem with one of the following subsystems:
TPS.The interactive installer does not support installing a subordinate CA. To install a subordinate CA, use the two-step installation. See Section 7.7, “Two-step Installation”.
