Working with the NEW Digital Certificate Manager (DCM)

The Digital Certificate Mananger (DCM) is where you will be importing Certificate Authorities (CAs) as well as working with certificates.

DCM is accessible from a web browser through the IBM HTTP Administration web interface. 

Follow these steps to access DCM:

Start the Administration Web Instance on our IBM i (System i, iSeries, AS/400):


Verify that the Administration Web Instance has started completely and is running.  Sometimes it can take a few minutes to completely start.


This command will list all jobs running named ADMIN.  In most cases this should only list the Administration Web Instance jobs.

Open your browser and go the URL http://youribmiaddress.ip:2006/dcm/login.  Replace "youribmiaddress" with the IP address of your IBM i or a name that resolves to the IP address of your IBM i.  You will then be asked for a user id and password. 

Enter a User ID and Password that has administrator privileges, and especially *IOSYSCFG authority.  You will then be presented with the IBM Digital Certificate for i.

Once you are working with the Digital Certificate Manager you are able to to many things such as Create your *SYSTEM Store or Import a Certificate Authority.
