Managing broken certificates

On a specified interval, the Certificate Protection feature validates that the certificate details stored by Active Administrator® match the certificates installed on the computer. When this feature is enabled, any differences found are reported as broken certificates and email notifications are sent to the recipients on the certificate email list. See Configuring certificate protection.

Broken certificates are indicated by an icon in the list and also display in a pane at the bottom of the window. See Viewing certificates.

You can attempt to repair the broken certificate or override the broken certificate, which replaces the certificate stored in the Active Administrator database with the broken certificate. An email notification is sent to a list of recipients when a broken certificate is repaired, fails repair, or is overridden. To see the history of repairs and overrides, select More | Broken Certificate History.

Select Certificates | Certificate Management.
Click Repair.
Click Yes. If the repair is successful, the status of the broken certificate becomes Valid.
Click Override.
Click OK. The status of the broken certificate becomes Valid.

Sending email notifications

You can send email notifications when a certificate is about to expire, added, or deleted. You also can check for certificates that use a cryptographic hash algorithm. Some notifications apply only to Certificate Management, while others also apply to the Certificate Repository. See Setting certificate configuration.
