This is what shows for the certs Pete. First is the single crt file. Next two are from the bundle. I see no reference to Comodo here despite what some of the emails said. The certs are for Sectigo and UserTrust

Hmmm...what is the error you receive? When I looked up Sectigo's root CA it points to Comodo (here: https://sectigo.com/resources/sectigo-root-intermediate-certificate-files ) You may have already checked these DCM resources: https://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=nas8N1012543 and https://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=nas8N1011678 but I am still flummoxed by the difficulty you are having. If you have a valid Comodo CA and the cert was issued by Comodo, DCM shouldn't be complaining.

I am not sure where else to go to look for more detailed messages when a certificate import fails....don't know if a Job log for the DCM job would have more info....

Thanks for the link Pete - I was wondering how the heck to check.

There are two certs in the bundle and these are the details.

It would seem that the issue is that although some of the correspondence said Comodo the cert is associated with their new name Sectigo.

So that explains why they are not active as a CA in the store - but that doeswn'rt explain why the DCM errors out when I try to add them as a CA.

I understand the basics behind all this - but surely IBM could make it easier than this!

Just don't know what to try next.

If you generated a CSR and they issued the certificate then I don't think you need to go through the whole thing again. I use LetEncrypt and have renewed multiple times using the same CSR so that has just been my experience. You can generate a new CSR every time if you want to. When I request a new certificate from Comodo, I used the same CSR as well. But, starting with a new CSR shouldn't be any different.....

I don't quite understand why your certificate is failing. If you had Comodo before, the CA for Comodo should be in the certificate store. You may want to open the bundle and then copy the certificate and paste it into https://www.sslshopper.com/certificate-decoder.html and see what it shows as the CA and the details of the certificate. SSLShopper has a bunch of tools to figure out what is going on with certificates. You can also check your CSR there. But, I doubt the issue is with the CSR because Comodo wouldn't have signed it otherwise. Maybe NameCheap as the intermediate is the issue and yes, use the entire bundle as your certificate to import.

Push come to shove, you can email NameCheap and explain the situation. They might let you re-generate the CSR and request a new cert. But, it just seems strange to me that you can't renew the certificate. Not a lot of moving parts to break here......

And if they have already issued a cert that I can't use they will just re-issue?

Namecheap will send you the cert, which you can export the CAs from. Of
course you need to do a little domain ownership verification first.

OK - so I guess to do that I have to start the whole CSR etc. bit again

John,

It's best to simply do a new CSR and import a new certificate (CAs first
of
course). Trying to renew using normal methods is a headache on the IBM
i.
So I just simply generate a new CSR each time.

I already have a cert applied but it is expiring.

Selected to renew it.

Chose to generate a new key pair.

Used the data to request the new key.

Got cert and attempted to apply. Keep getting a message that there is
no
such certificate in the store.


Question for those of you who understand all this. Could this be caused
because the new cert is not issued by the same authority as the previous
one? Original was from Comodo - new one from NameCheap - but the
underlying ceret is still from Comodo.

If that is the case, can I still use the certificate that I have for a
new
entry?
