Hello,

I am trying to import a PKI generated SSL into a custom java store using keytool, but get an error - cannot find certificate chain. I have a root cert an the server cert, but what do I use for the chain alias? Where can I see the chain alias for a PKI generated webserver certificate?

Thanks

Looks like you should add the chain (intermediate) certificates also on the same alias. You can get this chain from the CA that issued the server certificate.

May I also suggest to use http://keystore-explorer.sourceforge.net/ that makes it easier to handle keystores.

I usually suggest Keytool IUI - but that may be one of those things where its down to user taste :)
