How to create or renew a self signed root certificate on an Intel Mac X serve
Posted on 2011-05-11
OK, I configured and installed our Xserve last year. I don't recall anything special that I did to create this certificate. Our server is acting just as a file server, with no outside access, no web, no mail. The only services I have running are: AFP / NetBoot / Open Directory / Print / SMB / Software update.
Questions: is there really a need to renew or recreate one? What would happen if I don't?
If I have to renew, is it as simply selecting the gear (in Server Admin,name of server,Certificates)a
and choosing "Replace Certificate With Signed Or Renewed Certificate.....)
