Sun Java System Access Manager Policy Agent 2.2 Guide for Microsoft Internet Information Services 5.0

ProcedureTo Install the Access Manager Root CA Certificate on Microsoft IIS 5.0

  1. (Conditional) If the certificate database has not yet been created, create it at a unique location using a command such as the following:

    PolicyAgent-base\bin\certutil -N -d .
  2. Install the root CA certificate.

    Remember that the root CA certificate that you install on the Microsoft IIS 5.0 server must be the same certificate that is installed on the Access Manager host.

    The following example demonstrates a command you can issue that uses the certutil utility to install the certificate:

    PolicyAgent-base\bin\certutil -A -n cert-name -t 
    "C,C,C" -d cert-dir -i cert-file

    represents the name of this root CA certificate


    represents the directory where the certificate and key stores are located.


    represents the base-64 encoded root CA certificate file.

    For more information on the certutil utility, see the online help by issuing the following command:

    certutil -H
  3. To verify that the certificate is properly installed, in the command line, issue the following command:

    PolicyAgent-base\bin\certutil -L -d cert-dir

    The root CA certificate is then listed in the output of the certutil -L command as illustrated in the following code example:

    Certificate Name                             Trust Attrubutes
          cert-name                                      C,C,C
    p    Valid peer
    P    Trusted peer (implies c)
    c    Valid CA
    T    Trusted CA to issue client certs (implies c)
    C    Trusted CA to certs(only server certs for ssl) (implies c)
    u    User cert
    w    Send warning

  4. Restart the Microsoft IIS 5.0 server.
