(OO) Support Tip: Expiration date of Central self-signed certificate

If a custom TLS certificate was not provided during the installation of Central, a self-signed certificate was generated by the installer and should be in use in Central. In this case, its validity period is 10 years and it is possible to check the expiration date of the self-signed certificate by using a java keytool command:

>cd <your_OO_HOME>
>java\bin\keytool.exe -list -v -keystore central\var\security\key.store -storepass changeit

Before the expiration date, the current self-signed certificate should be replaced with new one or it is highly recommended to use a custom secure TLS certificate. See the following manual regarding replacing a certificate.
