This is driving me crazy, hopefully someone can help

I need to move an application tha uses cacerts from Windows to Linux, so I thought that a simple export / import of the required certs would do the trick.  No such luck.

Here is what I have so far.

On my Windows machine I can list the required certificate on the cacerts file as follows:

keytool -list -keystore cacerts

I can export the particular one I need with

keytool -export -file some.cer -alias some -keystore cacerts

I can view the newly created cert  on my file some.cer with:

keytool -printcer -file some.cer

Now, when I go to import it onto a new cacerts file on Linux (that has some other keys)

keytool -import -file some.cer -alias some.cer -keystore cacerts

I get the following error message

keytool error: java.security.NoSuchAlgorithmException: MD5WITHRSA Signature not available

Any ideas?

Copying the cacerts file over the old one in Linux doesn't seem to work.

Have you got a higher SDK in Windows than Linux?

Actually at this stage I am even using the same keytool on Windows as a test!

looks like that algorithm is not available to your linux runtime.

are you saying you get the same error on windows?

Is Your AD Toolbox Looking More Like a Toybox?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

I sorted the problem...  I was using the wrong version of the jre, I was exporting on Windows using jre 1.3.0, and trying to import it back there as a test, and it looks like objects is right, there was no algorithm there.  When I used the version 1.4 on my Windows machine, and subsequently in Linux it worked.

I am giving the points to objects... I should have tried harder!!

and what did i say in my comment? Saying the 'algorithm is not there' is merely repeating the error message. I explained the possible reason
