Policy Manager 12.10 and certificate for https

Hi,

 

Policy Manager 12.10 for Linux adds a secure connection between the server and the managed hosts.  As far as I understand the installation of the FSPMS created a self signed certificate for this connection.

 

Is it possible to use an alternate keystore?  More specifically, can I change somewhere the passwords used for the keystore and the private key?

    Is there a guide somewhere on HOW TO CHANGE THE CERTIFICATES? PM 12.10 Admin guide did not help at all, there's not even a mention about them in the whole manual.. very poorly documented.

    Same here. i'd also would like to see a sort of manual on how to create a keystore with a signed cert and use that for PMS. Reading through manuals does not shed a light on what the requirements are so pms picks up the key from the store

    Fellows, 

     

    please find the attached  instruction on how to provide a custom certificate to the Policy Manager Server. Please note, though, that this instruction describes the specific case of importing the certificate in PKCS12  format. For more information, please see the Oracle's documentation on 'keytool' utility:
