Question:  

How can I rename a certificate that is stored in the ACF2 database?

Answer:  

A certificate stored in the ACF2 database cannot be renamed. You can EXPORT the certificate 

to a z/OS dataset(use password if the certificate has a private key), DELETE the certificate from 

the ACF2 database, and then INSERT the certificate with the new name from the z/OS dataset. 

After doing the INSERT the certificate would need be reCONNECTed to any Keyring that the 

old named certificate was CONNECTed to. 

 

There is a TSO, ACF CHANGE command that can be used to make changes to certificates 

stored in the ACF2 database however only the following fields in the CERTDATA profile record 

can be changed: 

 

? active date - [active(date)] 

? expire date - [expire(date)] 

? label - [newlabel(label)] 

? trust status - [hitrust | trust | notrust]
