15.2 Backing Up the Internal Certificate Authority

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

  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.

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

  3. Enter a passphrase for the file encryption.The passphrase is used in the encryption of the backed-up file.

Ensure that you store this backup in a secure location so that it can be used to restore the CA in the event of a disaster.
