Install an SSL Certificate on IBM-Lotus Domino Go

Installing your Web Server Certificate

Your certificate will be sent to you by email. The email message includes the web server certificate that you purchased in the body of the email message. Copy the certificate from the body of the email and paste it into a text editor (such as notepad) to create text files. Name this file “Server.txt”.

Installing the Root and Intermediate Certificates

Create a text file. The file should be the Root Certificate. Name this file “rootca.txt”.

Note: Be sure to include the —–BEGIN CERTIFICATE—– line and the ——END CERTIFICATE—– line.
Note: If you start the ‘mkkf’ utility from the directory that contains your certificates you will not need to include the path.

  1. Select R to receive a certificate into the Key Ring File
  2. You will be prompted for the file name. Enter rootca.txt
  3. Enter SSL Root CA for the label
  4. Press ‘Enter’ to continue
  5. Select W to work with Keys and Certificates
  6. Select L to List/Select the key to work with
  7. Find the SSL Root CA and select S to select this menu
  8. Select T to mark this as a ‘Trusted’ root
  9. Select Y – Yes, to confirm this request
