GroupWise client does not see the imported personsign cert f

Hi,

We want have digital signatures (S/MIME) for an extra layer of security.

So we bought a PersonalSign certificate from GlobalSign.

The goal is to import the certificate via an automated way (zenworks) , so that the user himself does not have to import the cert.

Imported via the following commands:
cd C:\Windows\System32
certutil.exe -f -p mypaswword -importpfx C:\ourcert.pfx
Now the cert it is located in certutil personal store - certificates

How when I open groupwise I do not see the certificate.
GroupWise - Tools - Options - Certificates.

When I import the cert in the certificate manager of groupwise it does work...
But this method is not how I want it this is manual work, it want it automatized.

Which microsoft certificates store does GroupWise use?

Kr,

Joeri

I don't have a personal certificate installed right now, but Groupwise
definitely uses the microsoft certificate store, so I suggest that after
importing the cert from within groupwise, you just check in the
certificate store where in the store it ended up.

Hi Massimo,

I asked it to support:
The only supported method of installing a certificate into the GroupWise client is using Tools | Options | Certificates. Any other method is beyond the scope of GroupWise support.

What i found out :
When you use "GroupWise client is using Tools | Options | Certificates" to import the person cert -> it imports in Certificates - current user - Intermediate Certification Authorities - Certificates -> importerted
When you use "certmgr - Certificates - current user - Intermediate Certification Authorities - Certificates" -> import in "GroupWise client is using Tools | Options | Certificates" -> NOT imported

Somebody to help, else I have to do it manually...

Kr,
