Hi Rob.

To add to this mess, I seem to have somehow confused the LDAP
certificate configuration in the process of setting up a replicant
(ipa.cs.ru.is) with my new StartSSL (personal) certificate.  The
previous certificate was a corporate Level2 certificate.  Trying to use
the old certificate (which expires tomorrow) doesn't seem to put it back
in working order.

I thought you just needed to update the certificate. Why are you creating a new replica?

My own StartSSL Server cert expires in a month and I just renewed it this morning. They have a new subordinate CA, that might be part of the problem (both sides need to trust it). I'd look in the access log of the remote 389-ds server to see what error it threw (and the local one too I suppose).

But really, you should be able to replace the certs using certutil, not re-install the whole thing.

This is what I did to make the pkcs file:

cp ipa.cs.ru.is.crt ipa.cs.ru.is-bundle.crt
cat certs/ca-bundle.crt >> ipa.cs.ru.is-bundle.crt  (the ca-bundle is
the root_bundle.crt they now send you in a zip file)

openssl pkcs12 -export -in ipa.cs.ru.is-bundle.crt -inkey
private/ipa.cs.ru.is.key -out ipa.cs.ru.is.p12 -name ipa.cs.ru.is

ipa-replica-prepare --http-cert-file ipa.cs.ru.is.p12 --http-pin XXXXX
--dirsrv-cert-file ipa.cs.ru.is.p12 --dirsrv-pin XXXXX ipa.cs.ru.is

Then copied it to ipa.cs.ru.is and ran
ipa-replica-install --mkhomedir replica-info-ipa.cs.ru.is.gpg

Everything looks fine until:
   [24/38]: setting up initial replication

The process to get a new cert is pretty much the same as you obtained
the original assuming you kept the original CSR. You'd re-submit that to
StartSSL and they will provide a new certificate in PEM format.

Add that to the relevant database via:

# certutil -A -n "Server-Cert" -d /path/to/db -t u,u,u -a -i /path/to
cert.pem

I can't give much more specific information without knowing if you are,
for example, using the came cert/key for both 389-ds and Apache.

Hi there.
I setup an IPA4.2.0 on RHEL7 service for our CS department on
ipa.cs.ru.is(temporarily down) and ipa2.cs.ru.is
I used StartSSL to sign our certificate for HTTP and LDAP usage because I
didn't want our users to deal with the internal CA nor could we get the CA
certificate signed.  Problem is, I can't find any information on how to
get the new certificates installed on the running IPA server.  They expire
in 2 days, so I'm running out of time. Any help would be greatly
appreciated.

I can only find information on how to setup these certificates on a brand
new IPA or replicant.  There isn't any obvious information on how to put
updated certificates into a running instance.

Thanks in advance.
