Description

These general instructions can be used to install a new SSL certificate on a BMC server.

Instructions

Check current certificate from BMC Keystore:

keytool -list -v -keystore “C:\Program Files\Blancco\Blancco Management Console\apache-tomcat\conf\keystore.jks”

Using the Java keytool.exe, you can follow the steps below to install a new SSL certificate on your BMC server.

Run commands on Command Prompt which is opened with administrator privileges

Step 1: Stop the BMC service.

Step 2: Create the new keystore/keypair.

keytool -keystore "path_to\keystore_name.jks" -genkeypair -keyalg RSA -keysize 2048 -validity #of days -dname "cn=domain name, ou=yourOrgUnit , o=yourOrgOrCompany, l=City/locality, st=State/Canton/Province/Land, c=Country_ISO3166-digraph" -alias "domain name"
DNInformationDescriptionExample

ValidityNumber of days how long keystore is valid.365
CNCommon NameThis is fully qualified domain name that you wish to secure example.com
oOrganization NameUsually the legal name of a company or entity and should include any suffixes such as Ltd., Inc., or Corp. Example Inc
OUOrganizational UnitInternal organization department/division name IT
lLocalityTown, city, village, etc. name Helsinki
stStateProvince, region, county or stateNorth Karelia
cCountryThe two-letter ISO code for the country where your organization is located FI


(Optional - if "subject alternative name (SAN)" needs to be used):

keytool -keystore "path_to\keystore_name.jks" -ext san=dns:Name1,dns:Name2 -genkeypair -keyalg RSA -keysize 2048 -validity #of days -dname "cn=domain name, ou=yourOrgUnit , o=yourOrgOrCompany, l=City/locality, st=State/Canton/Province/Land, c=Country_ISO3166-digraph" -alias "domain name"


Step 3: Create a new CSR, Certificate Signing Request, for your new keystore/keypair.

keytool -keystore "path_to\keystore_name.jks" -certreq -alias domain_name -file "path_to\filename.csr"

(Optional - if "subject alternative name (SAN)" needs to be used):

keytool -keystore "path_to\keystore_name.jks" -ext san=dns:Name1,dns:Name2 -certreq -alias domain_name -file "path_to\filename.csr"


Step 4: Import the Root CA cert, then the Intermediate CA cert.

keytool -keystore "path_to\keystore_name.jks" -importcert -alias rootCA -file "path_to\root.cer"
keytool -keystore "path_to\keystore_name.jks" -importcert -alias intCA -file "path_to\int.cer"

Step 5: Import CA-signed certificate and apply the same to the keypair.

keytool -keystore path_to\keystore_name.jks -importcert -alias original_keypair_alias -file path_to\CAsigned.cer

Step 6: Update the "keystoreFile" and "keystorePass" values in the server.xml file located under "C:\Program Files\Blancco\Blancco Management Console\apache-tomcat\conf" to reflect any changes associated with key/cert.

keystoreFile="path_to\keystore_name.jks" keystorePass="keystore password"

Step 7: Start the BMC service.



  1. Stop BMC Service
  2. Copy .pfx format certificate file to "\Blancco Management Console\apache-tomcat\conf" folder.
  3. Open server.xml file in text editor located \Blancco Management Console\apache-tomcat\conf and edit following details.
    1. keystoreFile="Certificate_name.pfx"
    2. keystorePass="PFX_certificate_Password"
    3. Add a new value keystoreType="PKCS12" after KeystorePass.
  4. Save the server.xml file.
  5. Start BMC Service.
