Lotus Domino 4.6x & 5.0x SSL Certificates Installation

Note: Installing SSL Certificates on Lotus Domino Web Server requires that the Certificate files be merged into the same Key Ring that was used to generate the CSR. If you do not have this Key Ring then you will need to have a new certificate issued with a new CSR from a new Key Ring. The certificates must be installed to the Key Ring in the correct order (see example of order below):

TrustedRoot.crt 
E-Tugra_root.crt 
your_domain_name.crt

  1. Open Domino Server Certificate Administration (CERTSRV.NSF). This is in the System Databases in the administration panel of Notes.

  2. Choose "Install Trusted Root Certificate into Key Ring". Enter the file name of the key ring that was made when you created your CSR, then install the Trusted Root Certificate (TrustedRoot.crt). You may get a message that the root certificate is already installed as a trusted root. If you receive this message continue to step 3.

  3. Again choose "Install Trusted Root Certificate into Key Ring". Enter the file name of the key ring, then install your Intermediate Certificate(s) and then install repeat this process and install E-Tugra_root.crt next to this same location. Otherwise, you only need to install the E-Tugra_root.crt file here.

  4. This time choose "Install Certificate into Key Ring". Enter the file name of the Key Ring, then install your Primary Certificate (your_domain_name.crt) using the "Merge Certificate into Key Ring" button.

    Your SSL Certificate now installed to your Key Ring and it is ready for use on your Lotus Domino Server.
