Issue/Introduction

Importing a certificate to the Symantec Messaging Gateway Control Center that was created with a pre-existing private key - that was already imported and has another certificate that has also previously been imported - will overwrite the earlier certificate rather than adding a new one.

Cause

The earlier certificate is overwritten by the newer imported certificate due to the fact that the certificate is tied to the private key.

Resolution

Symantec is investigating this issue and will update this document when a solution is available. Please subscribe to this document in order to be notified of updates.
