    Which commands? The ones mentioned here: Administration Console and CLI Certificate Tools - Zimbra :: Wiki

    If so, could you please tell me where to start?

    Also, what kind of problem will we be experiencing when the end of life approaches?

    Thanks

    There's only one section, ZCS Certificate CLI.

    EOL means that the product will no longer be supported, nor will you be able to file bug reports for any problems you find, nor will there be any updates to it, nor will there be any security updates - you should upgrade as soon as you can.

    At the top of this HowTo, there is a section on viewing the certificate and Installing a certificate then I will get to the ZCS Certificate CLI section. Did you mean I have to skip those steps? The "Viewing Certificate" doesn't work as I get that error which I posted an image of it before.

    Should I start from the ZCS Certificate CLI section or the "Iinstalling Certificates" section? Sorry for being too thick, I'd like to get it done right.

    Will the software still work and user can send/receive emails?

    The error you're getting in the admin UI indicates your SSH keys on the filesystems don't match. To fix this, you need to do this as the zimbra user on all of your Zimbra servers:

    Code:
    zmsshkeygen
    After you've done that on all of the servers, then go back and do this on all them:

    Code:
    zmupdateauthkeys
    That should fix the error you got in the admin UI.

    justdave,

    Thanks much for the great advice. It fixed the issue. Now, my server has a new certificate and I can see that June date I was talking abut in my first post. Can you please tell me what exactly will happen on June 9th, 2012 and if the server will stop working altogether?



    Thanks

    Users visiting the HTTPS version of your web interface will get certificate errors from their browsers complaining that the SSL certificate has expired. The certficates you have listed right now are self-signed by Zimbra (the ones it generated for itself at install-time probably), so I would just have Zimbra generate its own new ones. From the same screen you were viewing the above in, there's an "Install Certificate" button at the top. Hit that, and pick the "install self-signed" choice, and then just follow the prompts.

    Thanks much justdave, really appreciate your help.

    Is this something that I should be doing now or it can wait until June?

    Also, back to my original question, will the server stop working or the issue which would be caused would only be the license expired message?

    Thanks again

    Tezarin,

    Due to certificates expiration Zimbra won't work because Zimbra uses the same certs to encript some internal communications between it's components.

    Hope helps you to clarify.

    Thanks ccelis, this was exactly what I was afraid of. I thuoght justdave said the only issue would be the "expired" notice, I guess I was misunderstood.
