Certificate geneerated by omnigencert.pl not accepted due to period of validity

0 Votes

Generating a certificate valid for 20 years using omnigencert.pl script under DataProtector 9.09 running on HPUX11.31, this certificate is not accepted by DataProtector: As a certificate valid for 19 years is accepted, this seems to be caused by the fact that the expiration date of the first certificate exceeds the 32 bit unix time.

The same behaviour was found (and reported) within DataProtector 8. If my assumption is correct, this needs to be documented at least.
