self signed SSL certificate issues

Hi

I am trying to install a self signed SSL certificate to enable https access without warning message popping up.

The command I am using is

"<jira-install-dir>\jre\bin\keytool" -genkey -alias tomcat -keyalg RSA

However, after running this command I am getting this error

Enter keystore password:
keytool error: java.io.IOException: Keystore was tampered with, or password was
incorrect

Note: This VM was cloned from another VM which had a SSL certificate generated.

What password are you trying? Try "changeit". That is the default. If that is not working, someone might have changed it to a stricter password.

Hi Jobin

Thanks for your comments.

Yea, there were two issues. Once I used changeit and a new alias it allowed me to create a keystore file in my home directory.

How do i change the password from changeit to something more secure?
