Notes Certifiers (One has gone missing)

Hi Experts,

In the N&AB under Certifiers, one of the Certifier entries has gone missing.

Unfortunatly we need to recertify a few ID files and when we try to do this the server displays the following error.

error locating an address book entry, the certifier /O=Cert; entry not found in index.

The Cert.ID file still exists, is there a way to regenerate this entry in the address book so we can recertify again.

Thanks in advance,

~Joe.

I should mention actually by "gone missing" I really mean some spoon has deleted it. (not guilty)
Also this server is running 5.09.

Never tried this, but do in menu:
Create->Document->Server->Certifier

And enter all field like you see in other simelar cert docs.
Or copy an existent cert doc and modify appropriate.

The most interesting field will be on the Basic tab labeled: Certified Public Key

I have already copied to clipboard the public key content from user.id, so I think this will be anyway also possible for the cert.id

Good luck,
Zvonko

I would read this article:

http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=475&context=SSKTWP&uid=sim1252bc1da0c26972d8525647200676faa

especially the part at the bottom about recertifying OU's and ID's.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Zvonko,

I already tried creating the certifier like you mentioned but didn't realise I could open the cert.id and copy/paste the public key into the manually created certifier.

I tried this and it worked well, as soon as I forced the adminp all my changes worked.

Thanks also Scott for the info but Zvonko hit the nail on the head.

Hi Sync,

Thats right, in the admin client on the pulldown menu bar select "Configuration" then "Certification" and select "ID Proporties"

Locate the ID file you want (including Certs), enter your password and you should be there.

(Click on More options will allow you to copy public key etc)
