CA ACF2 - z/OS

Issue/Introduction

Is there a job/command, besides the backup of the ACF2 databases, that will do certificate/ring backups? Management would like this in place (preferably a backup/restore job) so that if production signer/server certificates are deleted, we can get them back with a restore.

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA ACF2 for z/OS

Resolution

If the certificate is a user certificate you could always export with a password to a file, then re-insert when necessary.

If the certificate is a CERTAUTH certificate then the only way is the use the backup of the ACF2 databases.
