IBM WebSphere Application Server - Plugin Personal Certificate will expire on April 26, 2012
   

Does this affect you ?

Abstract

The personal certificate called "WebSphere Plugin Key" within the plugin-key.kdb that is shipped with the WebSphere Plugin install will expire on April 26, 2012.

Content

When the plugin is first installed, it places a copy of the plugin-key.kdb file within the [Plugin_Home]/etc directory. When the plugin is configured to an installed web server, it will pull a copy of this file from the [Plugin_Home]/etc location and place it within the [Plugin_Home]/config/{webservername} directory.

This key file contains a personal certificate that is set to expire by April 26, 2012. Action may be required to maintain encryption between the plugin and application server(s). Please read this documentation carefully to determine if you are affected and what steps may be needed to correct this situation.

I'd strongly recommend that you check this Technote, if you use IBM WebSphere Application Server and the WebSphere Plugin.

In our environment, I used the GSK command, as the IKeyMan GUI was not available to me on my headless Linux boxes: -

$ /opt/IBM/HTTPServer/bin/gsk7cmd -cert -list -db /opt/IBM/HTTPServer/Plugins/config/webserver1/plugin-key.kdb -pw WebAS

This gave me my cell-level certificate e.g. CN=Portal, OU=Root Certificate, OU=PortalCell, OU=PortalNode, O=IBM, C=US  which I then checked for expiration as follows: -

Label: CN=Portal, OU=Root Certificate, OU=PortalCell, OU=PortalNode, O=IBM, C=US
Key Size: 1024 
Version: X509 V3 
Serial Number: 11 FA EF 15 F5 2F E1 18 
Issued by: CN=Portal, OU=Root Certificate, OU=PortalCell, OU=PortalNode, O=IBM, C=US
Subject: CN=Portal, OU=Root Certificate, OU=PortalCell, OU=PortalNode, O=IBM, C=US
Valid: From: Thursday, 20 January 2011 12:05:44 o'clock GMT To: Friday, 16 January 2026 12:05:44 o'clock GMT 
Fingerprint: AE:2A:DC:10:6C:4A:18:A3:A0:46:A3:FD:EB:6E:2E:D0:8A:D2:CE:66 
Signature Algorithm: SHA1withRSA (1.2.840.113549.1.1.5) 
Trust Status: enabled 

Just because my environment is OK does NOT mean that yours is …. go check, go check NOW

Running SpinRite inside DOS wrapped inside VirtualBox wrapped inside Ubuntu
Sat, Aug 16th 2014 1:05p   Dave Hay
So I'm using Steve Gibson's SpinRite hard-drive maintenance utility to check the health of the Maxtor 6YI60M0 drive that I use to boot Orac up - running Ubuntu 14.04, of course. The quirk is that SpinRite is a good ole fashioned DOS application, that I downloaded from http://grc.com as an ISO image. I then built a VirtualBox VM, booting from the ISO, with an attached virtual disk that points at the Maxtor disk ( /dev/sdb ) upon which Ubuntu is installed. So I have a DOS application running ins [read] Keywords: application mac vm ubuntu

How to Increase the VMWare Boot Screen Delay
Sat, Aug 16th 2014 12:25p   Dave Hay
Something for which I had a requirement today: - If you've wanted to try out a bootable CD or USB flash drive in a virtual machine environment, you've probably noticed that VMWare's offerings make it difficult to change the boot device. We'll show you how to change these options. How to Increase the VMWare Boot Screen Delay In essence, the author talks one through adding a setting to the .VMX configuration file, which adds a delay to the boot of a VM, providing access to the BIOS screen and [read] Keywords: vm vmware

"Sixty ways to leave your lover" - or, in this case, sixty ways to remove CR from a file using vi
Fri, Aug 15th 2014 4:05a   Dave Hay
So I had a need to remove the ^M character from a text file, created using Notepad, in vi. Last time around, I simply paged through the file ( it was ~20 lines long ) and removed the character by hand. This time, for a longer file, I thought "Surely there's a better way?" and turned to Google. Guess what, there are MANY ways to do this. Here's a few: - Sometimes DOS files end up on unix systems without being converted. Files will then have those nasty ^M character at the line ending, which p [read] Keywords: applications google

A Forking Nightmare - 0403-030 The fork function failed. Too many processes already exist

So this one baffled me for several days, until I focused 100% on the problem. This is what I saw when I ran a script to start a WAS 8.5.5.2 Deployment Manager: - 0403-030 The fork function failed.
