Installing a commercial certificate in ZCS version 5.0.0_GA and above is a straightforward process.  The following is an overview of the steps you will take to install a commercial certificate.
 
#Generate a CSR via the '''Administration Console>Certificates''' or via the '''zmcertmgr''' command line utility.
 
#Receive the signed certificate.
 
#Receive the chain_certificates (if applicable).
 
#Install the certificate.

==Admininstration Console>Certificates==
 
This is the preferred method for installing commercial certificates. You simply start the Wizard and upload all the cert files and restart the Zimbra Services.
 
  
At the moment (8/26/08), according to Zimbra support, the web interface only supports having "one csr/private key at a time. Generating a new csr overrides the existing one and generates a new private key. If you want to generate more than one csr:
+
==Administration and CLI Tools==
- you simply generate the first one which is downloaded to

Zimbra offers both Administration Console and Command Line Interface (CLI) tools for installing, viewing, and managing certificates. For more information about these tools, see [[Administration Console and CLI Certificate Tools]].
  /opt/zimbra/ssl/zimbra/commercial directory (commercial.csr and commercial.key)
 
- move both files aside
 
- generate the second csr which would download to the same location above"
 
  
==/opt/zimbra/bin/zmcertmgr==
+
==Preexisting Certificates==
If the Administration Console>Certificates Wizard is not doing the job, we then resort to the command line.
+
If you'd like to install a certificate whose CSR was made elsewhere (for instance, if you have a wildcard certificate for your domain), see here: [[Preexisting Certifcate Installation for Zimbra 6.0]]
  
'''''Note:''' This tool must be run as root.'' 
+
==Third Party Certificate Articles==
 +
The following third party certificates have their own Wiki articles with installation instructions.
  
It requires the following:
+
===StartSSL===
 +
See [[Installing a StartSSL SSL Certificate with zmcertmgr]].
  
*The private key must exist in '''/opt/zimbra/ssl/zimbra/commercial''' directory and must be named '''commercial.key''' with permission set to '''740'''.
+
===Comodo SSL===
*The server certificate and the chain cert files must exist in a temp directory. E.g. '''/root/certs'''
+
See [[Installing a Comodo SSL Certificate with zmcertmgr]].
*The server cert must be named '''commercial.crt'''.
 
*The chain cert files must be concatenated into one file called commercial_ca.crt.
 
*Verify that the cert and the key match using this command:
 
/opt/zimbra/bin/zmcertmgr verifycrt comm /path/to/privatekey /path/to/commercial.crt /path/to/commercial_ca.crt
 
*From the temp directory, deploy the cert and restart the zimbra services.
 
(a) sudo zmcertmgr deploycrt comm /path/to/commercial.crt /path/to/commercial_ca.crt
 
(b) zmcontrol stop ; zmcontrol start
 
  
=Certificate Upgrade Issues=
+
===DigiCert===
If you are upgrading from 4.5x to 5.0.x and the cert failed to upgrade successfully, you need to re-install the cert. You will need these pieces:
+
See [[Installing DigiCert commercial certificates]].
  
#The private key. This can be extracted from the Tomcat keystore. Zimbra Support can help with this process if you send the Tomcat keystore.
+
===Gandi===
#The server certificate
+
See [[Installing a Gandi Commercial Certificate on ZCS 5.0.x and 6.0.x]]
#The chain cert files
 
  
With these pieces in hand, we can use the zmcertmgr to install the certificate as explained in [[#Importing commercial certificates from other mail systems to Zimbra 5.x]].
+
===GeoTrust Certificate===
 +
See [[Installing_a_GeoTrust_Commercial_Certificate]]
  
Check to make sure that only the jetty alias exists in the keystore.
+
===GlobalSign Certificate===
 +
See [[Installing a GlobalSign Commercial Certificate]]
  
keytool -list -keystore /opt/zimbra/mailboxd/etc/keystore -storepass  `zmlocalconfig -s -m nokey mailboxd_keystore_password`
+
===GoDaddy Certificate===
 +
See [[Installing a GoDaddy Commercial Certificate on ZCS 5.0.x]].
  
Delete the tomcat alias, if exists, with the following command.
+
===IPSCA Certificate===
 +
See [[Installing_a_IPSCA_Commercial_Certificate]]
  
keytool -delete -alias tomcat -keystore /opt/zimbra/mailboxd/etc/keystore -storepass `zmlocalconfig -s -m nokey mailboxd_keystore_password`
+
===Network Solutions Certificate===
 +
See [[Installing a Network Solutions Certificate on ZCS 5.0.x]].

+
===RapidSSL Certificate===
The steps are the same as the ones under [[#/opt/zimbra/bin/zmcertmgr]].
+

1. Rename the <server_name.crt> file to '''commercial.crt''' and place it in the '''/opt/zimbra/ssl/zimbra/commercial'''
 
2. chmod 700 commercial.crt
 
3. Concatenate the chain files into one file and call it '''commercial_ca.crt'''
 
cat AddTrustExternalCARoot.crt NetworkSolutions_CA.crt UTNAddTrustServer_CA.crt >> commercial_ca.crt
 
4. cp commercial_ca.crt /opt/zimbra/ssl/zimbra/commercial
 
chmod 700 commercial_ca.crt
 
5. Run a check against the cert files.
 
/opt/zimbra/bin/zmcertmgr verifycrt comm
 
6. At this point and if the output looks promising, go ahead and deploy the cert.
 
/opt/zimbra/bin/zmcertmgr deploycrt comm commercial.crt commercial_ca.crt
 
7. Restart the Zimbra services.
 
su - zimbra
 
zmcontrol stop
 
zmcontrol start
 
8. Verify that the Web interface is loading correctly with the new certificate.
 
  
'''''Note:''' This assumes that you have the private key in '''/opt/zimbra/ssl/zimbra/commercial''' named as '''commercial.key''' with the correct permissions.''
+
==Troubleshooting==
 
+
If you are experiencing issues installing, viewing, or managing your certificates, see the [[:Category:Troubleshooting Certificates]] category.
 
 
=Thawte SSL Certificate (SSL123 format)=
 
1. Generate the CSR from admin console and get it signed by Thawte in .pem format. Save the cert in /opt/zimbra/ssl/zimbra/commercial and rename it to commercial.crt . This directory should also contain commercial.key, which was generated at the time of CSR creation.
 
 
 
2. Download ThawteServerCA_b64.txt and save it at /opt/zimbra/ssl/zimbra/commercial
 
 
 
3. Run following commands as root:
 
 
 
cd /opt/zimbra/ssl/zimbra/commercial/
 
/opt/zimbra/bin/zmcertmgr verifycrt comm commercial.key commercial.crt ThawteServerCA_b64.txt
 
 
 
If output of above commands looks good, proceed to install the certificate.
 
 
/opt/zimbra/bin/zmcertmgr deploycrt comm commercial.crt ThawteServerCA_b64.txt
 
 
 
4. Restart the Zimbra services.
 
su - zimbra
 
zmcontrol stop
 
zmcontrol start
 
 
 
5. Verify that the Web interface is loading correctly with the new certificate.
