I just upgraded from GW 126.96.36.199 to GW18.0.1 on a test system, including change of server from W2008R2 to W2016. Worked like a dream, all users, PO and messages are present.
But Iâ€m not so sure about Webaccessâ€¦. Since my test system is offline (not connected to the internet), it canâ€t resolve DNS and I get a certificate error, when I access Webaccess on localhost. It looks like Webaccess uses a locally issued certificate (issued to 127.0.0.1) and not my companyâ€s wildcard certificate, which I installed in the IIS management console (the W2016 has the role Web Server installed). In previous versions of GW (2014 and earlier) Webaccess always found my IIS during the installation, and asked to close and restart it. This dialogue didnâ€t come when I installed WA18.
Question: Does Webaccess still find the certificate in IIS automatically and use it for GroupWise? Or must I install the certificate in Apache Tomcat 8.5? If so, how do I do this? The certificate is a password protected pfx.file, but I might be able to create .ca-crt, .crt and .key files as well.

Too bad Micro Focus did change this, as it complicates the installation. At least for us, using Windows and never had to deal with Tomcat.
I have searched for information on how to install a certificate in Tomcat, but all the guides seems extremely complicated. I guess they take it for granted you know how Tomcat works and is configured already.
So any installation documentation for dummies are very welcome!
