I need help to import certificate in tomcat. My actual certificate expired in January and i have a new Certificate in PFX Format. I follow this steps to renew the certificate but i can´t se the new certificate:

1- Generate the Keystore with this command:  keytool -genkey -keystore SecretariatQA -keyalg RSA -sigalg md5withrsa

2- Import the certificate in Keystore with this command: keytool -import -alias tomcat -file d:\SecretariatQA.pfx -keystore secretariatqa

I would be failing to see the change with the new certificate? the name of alias is OK or would have to be url?
