Issue

 

Is there a way to recover a forgotten password for the BoKS Admin Root CA? If you are trying to reinstall FoxT Control Center, bccgethostcert fails if you don't know the correct CA password.

 

Solution / Workaround

 

If you answered "yes" to the "Save password for automatic use?" question when you created the BoKS Admin Root CA, the password will be stored in:

 

$BOKS_data/sso_creds/ca_creds/keypkgs/<ca-dname+ski>.pin

 

However, if you did not store the password, then there is no way to recover it and a new BoKS Admin Root CA will have to be created.
