CMMVC8792E: Cannot install certificate because there is no outstanding certificate request.


You are attempting to install a certificate file using 'chsystemcert -install' without first creating a certificate request. Only a signed certificate that is produced from a certificate request that is created by the system can be installed. Once the certificate has been installed, it cannot be installed again.

User Response

Only a signed certificate request can be installed. Use the 'chsystemcert -mkrequest' command to create a certificate request and then get this request signed by a certificate authority (CA). The resulting certificate can then be installed.
