Replacing or renewing a certificate for an IBM
® Gateway cluster is similar to importing it for the first time, but you also replace the old certificate with the new one.
Before you begin
The keystore must contain the certificate request that was created and sent to the Certificate Authority. Also, the keystore must be able to access the certificate that is returned by the Certificate Authority.
Expected state: the Deployment Manager and the node agents are started. The servers are stopped.
® Application Server creates the certificate chain when the signed certificate is received. The chain is constructed from the signer certificates that are in the keystore at the time the certificate is received. Be sure to import all intermediate certificates as signer certificates into the keystore before receiving the CA-signed certificate.
