Installation prerequisites

Before starting the installation, make sure the SafeGuard Enterprise-SSL server certificate has been imported into the system keychain and is set to Always Trust for SSL.

  1. Ask your SafeGuard Server Administrator to provide you with the SafeGuard Enterprise server certificate for SSL (file <certificate name>.cer).
  2. Import the <certificate name>.cer file into your keychain. To do so, go to Applications - Utilities and double-click the Keychain Access.app.
  3. In the left pane, select System.
  4. Open a Finder window and select the <certificate name>.cer file.
  5. Drag and drop the certificate file into the System Keychain Access window.
  6. Enter your Mac OS X password when prompted.
  7. Click Modify Keychain to confirm your action.
  8. In the Keychain Access.app, double-click the <certificate name>.cer.
  9. Click on the arrow next to Trust to display the trust settings.
  10. For Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), select the option Always Trust.
  11. Close the dialog.
  12. Enter your Mac OS X password and confirm by clicking Update Settings.
    A blue plus symbol in the lower right corner of the certificate icon indicates that this certificate is marked as trusted for all users.

  13. Open a web browser and enter https://<servername>/SGNSRV to verify that your SafeGuard Enterprise Server is available.
Now you can start the installation.
Note:

Certificate import can also be done by running the command sudo /usr/bin/security add-trusted-cert -d -k /Library/Keychains/System.keychain -r trustAsRoot -p ssl "/<folder>/<certificate name>.cer". This can also be used for automated deployment via script. Change folder and certificate names according to your settings.
