Re-creating Server SSL certificates question


I re-created the SSL Certificates on my one OES 2015 server today using the document at

I re-created them using option 2 which uses the Re-creation script. In doing it this way it does not re-create the SAS service object. Is that object needed or is it OK that it does not re-create that object?

Re: Re-creating Server SSL certificates question

The SAS Service object should almost never need to be recreated, but it
definitely must exist (be/stay created) in order for key material objects
(KMO) to work properly. This object provides a link between the NCP
Server (your server object) and the KMOs. I have not read that article,
but typically recreate certificates using either ndsconfig or iManager,
and for anybody doing it for the first time I would probably recommend
iMangaer. Under 'Novell Certificate Server' is a 'Repair Default
Certificates' task which, when used, will recreate the KMOs for the
specified server.

Good luck.

Thanks for the reply. I will look into this further and try the other way.
