Updating Certificates in Nymi Enterprise Server

When you replace a Nymi Eval L1 and L2 certificate with a production L1 and L2 certificate, you must run the Nymi Enterprise Server(NES) installation wizard and select the new certificates.

Perform the following steps on the NES server.
  1. From the directory that contains the extracted NES installation package, run ..\NesInstaller\install.exe.
  2. On the User Access Control window, click Yes.
  3. On the Open File - Security warning window, click Run.
  4. On the left navigation pane, click Location, and then perform the following steps.
    1. In the Install Root field, confirm that the path to the NES services is correct, as it was specified during the initial deployment.
      The default location is C:\inetpub\wwwroot.
    2. In the Instance Name field, type the descriptive name that was specified during the initial deployment for the NES web application instance name. For example, NES. See Configuration Attribute Values in the Nymi Connected Worker Platform—Deployment Guide.
      Note: Ensure that the values that you specify in the Install Root and Instance Name match the values that you specified when you deployed the previous version of NES. When the values that you specified in the Install Root and Instance Name are correct, the Location test results will show Install Type: Update/ Re-Install. If there is no match for the values entered, the Location test results will show New Installation for the Install Type. The following figure provides an example of the Location window for an NES upgrade.

      The L1 certificate name is in the form enterprise_name NES L1 CA.
    2. From the Level Two Certificate list, select the L2 certificate.
