|File name||Enter a file name for the key database:
- AIX, Linux, Solaris: keys.jks
- Windows: stkeys.jks
|Location||Choose the directory in which the "stkeys.jks" file will be stored. The examples in this documentation assume the file is stored in the Sametime_install_root/jvm/bin directory.|
- In the "Password" dialog box, complete these fields and then click OK:
|Password||Type the password that you will use to access the keystore. You will need this password later in the procedure.|
|Confirm password||Type the password again to confirm it. |
