CA Automation Point

Issue/Introduction

When using CA Automation Point with a connection to CA OPS/MVS on the mainframe, you need to setup a CCI connection in the CA Automation Point Configuration Manager..
Some companies require TLS security and a security certificate is needed.
During the installation the default security certificate (cert.pem) is stored in the C:\Program Files (X86)\CA\CA_APPSW\  directory.
When using it, additional customization is needed and saved.

Environment

Release:
Component: ATMXC

Resolution

The best location of the new, changed CERT.PEM file is in the C:\ProgramData\CA\CA_Automation Point\Site\MyFiles\ directory, or in another C;|ProgramData directory.
The reason to this is that during the installation, or upgrade of CA Automation Point the C:\Program Files (X86)\CA\CA_APPSW\  will be deleted and rebuild with the new installation.
Because of this delete also your customized CERT.PEM file will be lost.
