|Zimbra: Certificate Expiration and Renewal|
|Friday, 11 March 2011 13:46|
This article is mainly to prepare myself for possible upcoming certification renewals.
Zimbra ZCS 7.0.x requires a valid self-signed or commercial SSL certificate for communication between some components. The self-signed certificates that are automatically created by the ZCS install have a default expiration of 365 days.
# sudo zmcertmgr createca -new # sudo zmcertmgr deployca # sudo zmcertmgr deploycrt self
If you get an error like:
# zmcertmgr createca -new [sudo] password for zimbra:
Then make sure you type the commands using the full path (because that is the way sudo probably is configured):
# sudo /opt/zimbra/bin/zmcertmgr createca -new # sudo /opt/zimbra/bin/zmcertmgr deployca # sudo /opt/zimbra/bin/zmcertmgr deploycrt self
