Set new ESMC Server certificate

Your ESMC Server certificate is created during installation and distributed to ESET Management Agents and other components to allow communication to the ESMC Server. If necessary, you can configure ESMC Server to use a different peer certificate. You can use ESMC Server certificate (generated automatically during installation) or a Custom certificate. The ESMC Server certificate is required for a secure TLS connection and authentication. The Server certificate is used to make sure that ESET Management Agents and ESMC Proxies do not connect to an illegitimate server.
