If you are using an S3-Compatible storage provider that is secured with a self-signed certificate, connections to the object store may fail with a
certificate signed by unknown authority message.
In order to proceed, a certificate bundle may be provided when adding the storage provider.
When using the
velero install command, you can use the
--cacert flag to provide a path
to a PEM-encoded certificate bundle to trust.
velero install \ --plugins <PLUGIN_CONTAINER_IMAGE [PLUGIN_CONTAINER_IMAGE]> --provider <YOUR_PROVIDER> \ --bucket <YOUR_BUCKET> \ --secret-file <PATH_TO_FILE> \ --cacert <PATH_TO_CA_BUNDLE>
Velero will then automatically use the provided CA bundle to verify TLS connections to that storage provider when backing up and restoring.
To use the describe, download, or logs commands to access a backup or restore contained
in storage secured by a self-signed certificate as in the above example, you must use
--cacert flag to provide a path to the certificate to be trusted.
velero backup describe my-backup --cacert <PATH_TO_CA_BUNDLE>
