Subject How do I create a new keystore...
Date Mon, 28 Apr 2003 12:23:56 GMT
Tomcat gurus,

Abstract:
How do I create a new keystore to correct my expired key/cert?


My platfrom... Win2k w/ JDK: 1.4.1_02

I'm running a Tomcat 4.1.x server with SSL. Recently my original 
certificate expired.

I need to create a new one but keytool is providing me cryptic 
exceptions.

here's some of the attempts I have made:

C:\>keytool -genkey -alias tomcat -keyalg RSA -keystore \
"e:\bugger\clean city\conf"
keytool error: java.lang.Exception: Keystore file exists, but is empty: 
e:\bugger\clean city\conf

C:\>keytool -delete -v -alias tomcat
keytool error: java.lang.Exception: Keystore file does not exist: 
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator.ADMINISTRATION\.keystore

C:\>keytool -delete -v -alias tomcat -keystore \
"e:\bugger\clean city\conf"
keytool error: java.lang.Exception: Keystore file exists, but is empty:
e:\bugger\clean city\conf

C:\>keytool -list
keytool error: java.lang.Exception: Keystore file does not exist:
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator.ADMINISTRATION\.keystore

C:\>keytool -list -keystore e:\bugger\cleanc~1\conf
keytool error: java.lang.Exception: Keystore file exists, but is empty:
e:\bugger\cleanc~1\conf

What gives?

Many thanks in advance.

Warmest Regards,
Tim
