SSL Stash-File for Domino and Linux

After moving an IBM Domino Server from Windows 2003 to Cent OS 6.4 ( I know, it´s officially not supported ) there was a strange issue about the HTTP server.

The HTTP server could not raise up for SSL connections. The investigation with the NOTES.INI entry SSL_TRACE_KEYFILEREAD=1showed, that the password for the KYR file could not be read from the stash file.

So i double checked all the entries in the server document, on the file system, … and found out that I hate Windows ( regarding the uppercase/lowercase issue – it´s the only OS, which ignores this !!! )

I had to modify the name of the KYR file in the server document…

After copying the TRAVkeyring.sth to TRAVKeyring.sth HTTPS could be established successfully.
