Without any deep checking I would say that you properply have to reinstall. I think it's only possiple to change cert if it's an external to another external from the same CA.

The internal is set to hold for 10 years! But how you renew it after these years, I dont know. But since its a renewal, its not such a feature you need.

Also if you change the cert, all your clients need to get this also.

If it's the server certificate you are looking to replace... this bit should help you : Novell Documentation - ZCM 11.1 : 37.0 Reconfiguring a Zone Certificate Before It Expires

The internal CA itself cannot be recreated ATM AFAIK (as Niels pointed out) but needs to be changed to using an External one for your certificates after the 10 years are up for the CA. I'm sure there will be a documented procedure for that in later versions. 🙂

Cheers,
Willem

You can use the novell-zenworks-configure -c SSL -Z to re-create the internal certificates. Just choose 'Self signed' when creating them. Note that you will have to reestablish trust from all the managed devices. More information can be found at Novell Documentation under Chapter 38.0 "reconfiguring a zone certificate after it expires"
