Import a copy of the LDAP server's trusted root SSL certificate into the keystore database on the IBM
® Sametime server to encrypt communications between Sametime and the LDAP server.
Before you begin
When the key.kdb
database is created, it contains several trusted root (or "signer") certificates by default. If a trusted root certificate used by the LDAP server exists in the key.kdb
database by default, then you can skip this procedure.
If the key.kdb
database does not contain an appropriate trusted root certificate by default, you must obtain a trusted root certificate from the appropriate CA and add it to the key.kdb
Make sure you have copied the trusted root certificate from the LDAP server into the Sametime server's data directory. The data type should be Base64-encoded ASCII
. The file format can be .CER
