Section Number and Name: 4.7.5. Configuring Capsule Server with a Custom Server Certificate

Describe the issue: When upgrading a Capsule Server, the installer checks for the certificates TAR file. If this file is not found, the installer will fail with a message similar to the following:

[ERROR 2017-01-26 14:30:45 main]  tar -xzf /var/tmp/srvcapsule01.tar returned 2 instead of one of [0]

Suggestions for improvement: Add a notice to the custom certificates documentation, instructing customers to retain the certificates archive (TAR) file, even after those certificates have been deployed to all relevant hosts.

Additional information: This BZ ticket was raised in response to a customer case being managed by Sam Yangsao, and discussed via IRC (#sysmgmt).
