Description Filip Hanzelka 2018-04-12 15:14:44 UTC
Update the following chapter https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/7/html-single/linux_domain_identity_authentication_and_policy_guide/#requesting-cert-certutil
based on the input provided by Morgan Weetman:

The command in step 3 needs to include '--certificate-out <file_name>'.

Then we need a step 4, where we use certutil to add <file_name> into the NSS DB, in my case I used:

certutil -A -d idmuser01-cert/ -n idmuser01 -t "P,," -i ~/idmuser01.pem

.. it will be different for your example.

The purpose of these updates is so that the certificate generated with certutil can be renewed when expiry time gets close.
