Launch makecert.bat.

Warning: During the generation of cert, the most important step is the Common Name (CN) definition. You have to specify the hostname hosting OCS.

If the server hosting OCS is named web-server and is placed in domain named toto.ru , then you will have to define a Common Name during cert generation : web-server.toto.ru.

During agents configuration on clients, you will have to define OCS server URL like this : http://web-server.toto.ru/ocsinventory .

SSL control is based on these two values.

Cert was generated in directory \xampp\apache\conf\ssl.crt and is named server.crt. You just have to rename this file in cacert.pem before place it in configuration directory of agents.
