Hi All,

I have NO experience in Websphere but I need to create a signed certificate (not a self signed one). I've googled and found lots of documents but none seem to make sense and I cant get it to work.

Anyone have a detailed set of instructions I can refer to?

I believe it's version 6.1.

thanks

Receive certificate from CA
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/wasinfo/v6r1/topic/com.ibm.websphere.zseries.doc/info/zseries/ae/usec_sslreceiveCA.html

or you can use ikeyman. if you for dmgr then you need located key.p12 for dmgr level. if you want for node then you need to locate the key.p12 for node level

for example location

key.p12 for dmgr


/usr/Webspherev6.1/profiles/dmgrprofile/config/cell/cellname

key.p12 for node

/usr/Webspherev6.1/profiles/dmgrprofile/config/cell/cellname/node/nodename01

steps using ikeyman it same for v6.1

I've just found out we are also using a trial ssl certificate, do we need to load the trial root certificate into websphere?

Seeing as you provided lots of information I will award the points. We wernt able to complete the ssl install as the test certificates were an issue, we eventually just created a self cert for the test.

Thanks for the information, I'll use it when we do it all over again.
