  2. Download and save the certificate.

    Configure a TLS certificate before you use the preceding service address to access the Docker cluster.

    Click Download Certificate in the cluster details page to download the certificate which is contained in the certFile.zip file. In the following example, the downloaded certificate is saved to the ~/.acs/certs/ClusterName/ directory. ClusterName indicates the name of your cluster. You can save the certificate to a different directory, but the ~/.acs/certs/ClusterName/ directory is recommended for easy management.

    1. mkdir ~/.acs/certs/ClusterName/ #Replace ClusterName with your cluster name
    2. cd ~/.acs/certs/ClusterName/
    3. cp /path/to/certFile.zip .
    4. unzip certFile.zip

    The certFile.zip file contains ca.pem, cert.pem, and key.pem files.
