Domino 8.5 SSL Key Import Into Keyring File
Domino Server SSL Key Import
By default, the SSL key order process in the Domino Administrator assumes that only single domain certificates are used. Hence, when you have a multi domain UCC or a wildcard certificate, it has to be loaded into the keyring (a.k.a. kyr file) outside of the Domino Administrator.
The basic overview of the process is this:
- Create a (keyring) file to hold the keys.
- Create a (PKCS#12) file with the certificate that needs to be added to the keyring.
- Add the (PKCS#12) file to the keyring.
- Install the new keyring on the Domino Servers (mail, traveler, sametime, Quickr)
Domino Server PKCS#12 key generation and import
Create PKCS#12 from SSL KEY and CRT files
For this step I recommend to be on the Linux or AIX with openssl installed. Assuming that you have the certificate key, the CA issued certificate, and the certificate chains all in the same directory, you can run the following command to generate the file:
Add PKCS#12 to Domino Server Kyr Keyring File
For this step I recommend to be on the sametime server under Linux or AIX. In theory, this should work, but in practice, I found that the version 7 of the tools doesn’t seem to be able to open files. So you may need to skip ahead to the legacy Windows XP method, unless you can find the package on one of your older install media.
