Dear Customer,Please notice the following IBM Alert:
IBM ALERT: Tivoli Workload Scheduler default certificates need to be renewed before December 10 2013
Tivoli Workload Scheduler provides a secure, authenticated, and encrypted connection mechanism for communication based on the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, which is automatically installed with Tivoli Workload Scheduler.
Tivoli Workload Scheduler also provides default certificates to manage the SSL protocol that is based on a private and public key methodology.
Tivoli Workload Scheduler Distributed and zOS uses SSL by "default" for different TWS communications into TWS network.
If you do not customize SSL communication with your own certificates, Tivoli Workload Scheduler uses the default certificates that are stored in the default directories to communicate in SSL mode. Your Environment could be impacted even if SSL feature is not enabled.The default certificates expire on February 10, 2014 but you need to renew them before December 10 2013.You need to follow instructions on the following Alert to avoid broken communications at that time.
IBM team published the following Alert for TWSd and TWSz Customers:
The alerts contain the information needed to manage that scenario along with links to IBM STEs for TWSd and TWSz customers which will be held in Sept the IBM support team.
A new course is available:
