alternative for pkidiag?

as this tool no longer is available (at least i could not find it, only dead old documenation/TIDs) - how would i, apart from the trace options, troubleshoot certificate issues?

thanks, florian

Re: alternative for pkidiag?

I suppose that depends on the issue. Most of the time pkidiag was useful
for recreating old/expired certificates, and for that you can either use
'ndsconfig upgrade' or you can use the 'Repair Default Certificates' task
within iManager. For other troubleshooting, most of the time it is the
application which needs troubleshooting more than the certificates
themselves, so application logs/traces are appropriate.

Good luck.

I seem to recall that pki is checked, similar to pkidiag, when ndsd / dhost.exe starts now. That may only be for Linux, but I you might check the log to see if it's also true for Windows.

PKIDiag on Linux - Recreating Server Certificates

Recreating Server Certificates on OES Linux

Unfortunately, the extremely useful netware tool, PKIDiag, is not available in Linux. However, the tasks that PKIDiag performs can be duplicated in Linux.
This process is very useful if you have to update a server certificate (the default expiration time for a server certificate is two years, so this may happen often if you went with the default settings).
