The certlink utility provides an automated method of creating symlinks based on certificate hashes. TDGSS software includes the certlink utility in:
- On Teradata Vantage: /opt/teradata/tdgss/bin/certlink
- On Unity: See Teradata® Unity™ Installation, Configuration, and Upgrade Guide for Customers, B035-2523 for the recommended location on Unity servers.
To create symlinks based on certificate hashes using the certlink utility:
- From the site/ssl/cacerts directory that contains the two pem files, enter the following command to hash the files:
- The command produces output similar to:
dlopldap:~ # certlink . dlopldap.pem => c5fc7afc.0 YaST-CA.pem => 9a135280.0 dlopldap:~ #
The example output shows that certlink created two symlink files:
These symlinks point to the .pem files:
See Example: Certificate Chain for an example.
