PGP Universal - SSL Expiring

Created: 01 May 2013 • Updated: 07 May 2013 | 3 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.


My PGP Universal 3.2.1 MP5 server is complaining about an SSL certificate that will soon expire (VERY soon actually). It is the certificate that was automatically created when the server was first installed (one year ago). So I need the following:

  1. What would the impact be if it actually expires (malfunction, lost client connection, etc.)?
  2. What would the impact be on my PGP Gateway Email?
  3. How to renew/replace it?
  4. How to reflect this modofication on clients (if required)?

You can check out the attached screenshot. Many thanks in advance.

Thanks Tom & Arif. The latter gave me more about the impact of expiry. BTW, I created a new one in the GUI and assigned it to the interface without any problem - not even affecting mail flow or my PGP cluster!
