About this task
Install the programs and create the key database by completing the following tasks:
Parent topic: Setting up a keystore for the SSL certificate used by the LDAP server
1. Installing a supported release of GSKIt on Tivoli Directory Server
You should install the latest version of GSKit available on the IBM Tivoli
® Directory Server web site. At a minimum, you must upgrade to 220.127.116.11.
2. Creating a keystore database for the LDAP server's SSL certificate
Community Server must store a copy of the IBM Lotus
® server's SSL trusted root certificate to complete the SSL handshake when making an SSL connection to a browser-based client. Before you can import the SSL certificate from the Lotus Domino
server, use the GSKit and IKeyMan utility to create a keystore file on the Sametime
Community Server for storing the certificate. This procedure applies to IBM AIX
, Microsoft Windows
, or Oracle Solaris, but does not apply to IBM
i. The keystore database is not used by Sametime on IBM
