Verifying Volution Manager CA certificates
The Volution Manager Key Tool is a command line
key and certificate configuration tool
that allows you to view, import, and configure
keys and Volution Manager CA certificates
installed on your SCO OpenServer systems.
The advantage in using this tool is that you can
check the fingerprint on the CA certificate to make
sure it matches the one installed on the VM Server.
You only need to run the Volution Manager Key Tool
on SCO OpenServer VM client systems
if you are concerned about your systems communicating
with unauthorized VM Servers or
if you have more than one VM Server in your network.
Using this tool provides an extra measure of security.
To verify that the fingerprint on the VM Client's
CA certificate matches the one installed
on the VM server:
Now you can cross-check the fingerprints on the
VM Client and VM Server certificates.

/opt/volution/bin/volutionkeytool cacert import
The issuer, subject, and fingerprint of the CA
certificate for the client system is displayed.
To display the certificate on the VM Server:
/opt/volution/bin/volutionkeytool cacert list
