 1. Export the certificate from the server keystore

The -rfc means to export the certificate as ASCII text rather than binary. 

ServerA- name of the server 
serverA.cer - name of the certificate 
keyStore.ks - keyStore file name 

2. Add current certificate (serverA.cer) to the lisa keystore file (webreckeys.ks)
