  1. Import the root CA into the trust keystore.

    keytool -import -trustcacerts -alias <alias> -keystore <keystorefile> -file <certificatefile>

    For example:

    keytool -import -trustcacerts -alias scca -keystore ovictex.truststore -file mycacert.pem

  2. Configure

    1. Set sc.webservice.endpoint.

      sc.webservice.endpoint = http://<smhostname>:<port>/sc62server/PWS

    2. Add the following configuration entries in

      <smhostname>.keystore=<ovictex keystore file>
      <smhostname>.keystore.password=<keystore password>
      <smhostname>.truststore=<ovictex truststore file>
      <smhostname>.truststore.password=<truststore password>

      For example:

      sc.webservice.endpoint =
      …… Files/Micro Focus/SMSSMEX/config/certs/ovictex.keystore Files/Micro Focus/SMSSMEX/config/certs/ovictex.truststore

      Note The keystore.password and truststore.password should use <SMSSMEX_installDir>/bin/encryptPasswords.bat to encrypt. For usage of encryptPasswords.bat, refer to Tools.
