Updated: 3-9-2017

SolarWinds has created a PowerShell script to create a self-signed certificate suitable for AppInsight for IIS. This can be found at:

https://support.solarwinds.com/Success_Center/Server_%26_Application_Monitor_(SAM)/AppInsight_for_IIS:_Create_certificates

Once downloaded, execute the script by right-clicking it and selecting, Run with PowerShell. The following parameters apply:

  • IP address: Mandatory
  • Certificate lifetime in days: Optional

You can run this script with the default arguments from the PowerShell console or specify each one.

For example:

& '.\Create self-signed certificate script.ps1' 192.168.2.69 3650

where 192.168.2.69 is the IP address of the node to be monitored by AppInsight for IIS and 3650 is 3,650 days (10 years).
