Hello All,

I'm in the process of deploying FreeIPA 4 in a development environment.
One of my testers has imported the ca.pem file into Windows, and indicates
that it displays as:

Issued to: Certificate Authority
Issued by: Certificate Authority
Friendly Name: <None>

This will unfortunately cause confusion among certain end users, so I was
wondering if there's a way to change those attributes?

Ideally without reinstalling everything, but thankfully we're still early
in the process so it's OK if do blow everything away.

Do I need to generate a new CA outside of FreeIPA and then use
ipa-cacert-manage to "renew" the base CA?

Hi Anthony,

After a brief investigation it appears that ``Friendly Name'' is a
property that can be set in a Windows certificate store, and is not
part of, or derived from, the certificate itself.

Here are a couple of TechNet articles that might help:

As for "Issued to" and "Issued by", I guess these are derived from the subject and issuer name fields of the certificate, which currently can't be changed for our CA certificate.

We have a ticket to fix this for quite some time: <https://fedorahosted.org/freeipa/ticket/2614>.
