HPE Aruba central - how to add a crypto pki ta-profile using multiedit

1) create a test root CA
1.1) create a private key for the CA: openssl genrsa -out myTestCA.key 2048
1.2) generate the root certificate: openssl req -x509 -new -nodes -key myTestCA.key -sha256 -days 99 -out myTestCA.pem
-> fill in some test info / Country Name

2) no we have a new root certificate, it looks like:
cat myTestCA.pem

3) to insert the certificate using multiedit, you need to paste (oopy the whole section once!!!) the PEM certificate including "END_OF_CERTIFICATE" on a new line at the end followed by a CR/LF, so it looks like:
crypto pki ta-profile myTestCA
ta-certificate
