Create eDir-to-eDir Certificates


We deleted and re-created the CA in one of our connected eDirectory trees due to approaching expiration.  After doing so, we are unable to re-create the eDir-to-eDir certificate for the driver that connects this secondary tree to the identity vault tree.

Break or Veto how to understand the difference

Question: IDM has the tokens break and veto: which one do I want to use?

Veto means to veto the entire event.  All done; all through.  No passing go; no collecting $200.

I am being asked for a License Key to upgrade my installation.  I don't know where to look.

Doing an update on ZENworks typically just goes.  However, license keys are needed for an upgrade.  Finding those keys can be challenging.

Deployment Automation: Deliver High-Quality Software Efficiently and Reliably

DevOps transformation projects aim to deliver software innovation faster and with less risk.
