Generating a CMS Key Database File

The utility for generating a CMS key database is IkeyMan, located in the GSKit\bin directory.

NOTE:  Be sure that you complete the configuration of GSKit and set up the JAVA_HOME before running the key-generation command.

To generate a CMS key database file

  1. Run gsk6ikm.exe on Windows or gsk6ikm on UNIX.
  2. Enter a password.

    NOTE:  Do not check the box Stash the password to a file, because the password is entered in an LDAP object in the repository file.

  3. For details on generating a key database file, see the IBM Directory Server administration guide's chapter on securing the directory, in the section on using gsk6ikm.

NOTE:  If you are using non-IBM LDAP server for authentication, you follow similar steps to obtain the LDAP server's certificates. If you do not have the separate server certificate file and it is already stored in the LDAP server, you can export the server certificates to a file and then import with IKeyMan into a CMS key database file.

After creating the CMS key database file, you need to store it in the Siebel Analytics Server configuration directory.
