I have just upgraded, or rather, installed a new Kerio-Connect appliance (OVA). In doing that I need to reinstate my existing SSL certificate (third party signed certificate). To do this I need the key file but, of course, as I have a certificate which came from the previous version of the Kerio-Connect OVA, I don't have a key file available that is related to the SSL certificate.

How can I overcome this problem without having to go to the expense of paying for a new SSL certificate from Thawte?

You need to export the .key file from web administration or copy it from /sslcert directory on previous virtual appliance.

BUT: If you want to re-issue the certificate as a precaution to Heartbleed problem, you MUST generate new key and CSR in Kerio Connect and then let your CA sign the CSR and produce the SSL certificate file. Then import it back into CSR in Kerio Connect.

Thank you for your kind and helpful reply. Unfortunately, I had the illogic to delete the previous VM from my vSphere infrastructure before common sense set in. When I read you reply, and after I kicked myself, I tried to find a Veeam backup but, it looks like I'm running on air today. I suppose, as you rightly suggested, I'll have to step up and buy a new certificate.

Thanks again. Much appreciated.

Everything is cool. I found the last backup prior to deleting the VM. Everything now back in place, including the SSL certificate.

RULE #1: ALWAYS TAKE BACKUPS AND STORE THEM OFF THE SERVER.
