- Verify that the ikeyman.sh file's SAMETIME_HOME variable specifies the correct path for your server's installation directory, modifying it as needed.
The default installation directories for Sametime are as follows:
- AIX: /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/latest/ibmpow
- Linux: /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/latest/linux
- Solaris: /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/latest/sunspa
- Make sure the ikeyman.sh file has execute privileges.
- Start the ikeyman.sh utility.
The ikeyman.sh utility requires a graphical interface. If you run it in a text-only terminal, be sure to redirect the display to an x-windows session.
- Click the Add button.
- In the "Add CAs certificate from a File" dialog box, do the following:
- Verify that Base64-encoded ASCII data is selected as the "Data type".
- Set the Certificate file name to the name of the text file (for example, CA.txt) into which you copied the certificate.
- Set the Location to the location to which you transferred the CA.txt file in the previous procedure (for example, /local/notes/data).
- Click OK.
- Close IKeyMan after the file is imported successfully.
