    ****************************************************************
    Due to a code defect, the default root certificate in a CMS
    keystore was not deleted while converting the keys for FIPS
    support. As a result, the unused certificate would stay in the
    keystore.
    

Problem conclusion

  • With this fix, the unused certificates will be deleted upon
    converting the certificate.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 8.5.5.13 and 9.0.0.5.  Please refer to the
