I'm creating my own Certificate Authority. I tried it once in my server using openssl and then keytool. It ran perfectly the first time. But when I did it again on the same server I got this error when I tried to import the CA using the command
keytool -import -alias CHRM -file chrm.crt -keystore chrm.crt -storepass changeit
Can anyone help me? Do I need to reinstall the Linux OS to refresh everything?

Re: keytool error: java.io.IOException: Invalid keystore format2012-03-02T19:34:11Z in response to CHRppThis might be a common mistake for importing CA, you are using a keytool which is not coming from $JAVA_HOME.Therefore, u can try this command instead.
$JAVA_HOME/bin/keytool -import -alias CHRM -file chrm.crt -keystore chrm.crt -storepass changeit

Re: keytool error: java.io.IOException: Invalid keystore format2012-09-06T05:37:23Z in response to CHRppI was able to reproduce the error by mangling the trusted.certs file at directory
C:\Documents and Settings\CDay\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\security.
Deleting the file fixed the problem.

Re: keytool error: java.io.IOException: Invalid keystore format2012-09-06T11:46:32Z in response to CHRppHello,
When you want to import a CA certificate, first the alias must not exist
into your keystore file and you must use -trustcacerts with your command.
as your command must be
keytool -import -trustcacerts -alias CHRM -file chrm.crt -keystore chrm.crt -storepass changeit
then if needed you can import the certificate signed by this CA.
Hope this help you.
