10.3 Backing Up the Certificate Authority

To back up the Certificate Authority files on the Primary Server that is configured to be the ZENworks internal Certificate Authority:

  1. At the command prompt of the ZENworks Server, enter the following command:

    zman certificate-authority-export (certificate-authority-export/cae) [options] (file path)

    This command exports the key-pair credentials of the zone Certificate Authority to a file. For more information about zman Certificate Authority commands, see zman(1)in the ZENworks 10 Configuration Management Command Line Utilities Reference.

  2. Enter the username and password of the administrator of the Management Zone.

  3. Enter a passphrase for the file encryption.

    Make sure you remember this passphrase. You must enter it if you ever need to restore the server.
