KB ID: 27617   Fits for cdot 8.2 + 8.3, we have cdot 9.3P4 and we need slightly diferent syntax, so I want to verify that:


1. Can i renew the expired Certs without any connectivity loss?

2. Is this Command Syntax for cdot 9.3P4 correct?

security certificate create -vserver cluster1 -common-name cluster1 -size 2048 -type server -country AT -expire-days 3650 -hash-function SHA256

Many Thanks, Thomas
