Problem: univention-certificate-user Does Not Renew User Certificates

Problem

The command univention-certificate-user renew -cn user12345 -name user12345 -days 365does not renew the user certificate.

Environment

Your are using the Cool Solution and want to renew the certificates on the command line instead of the web frontned (“UMC”).

Solution

You have to tell the tool which path to use for the user certificates. An existing ucr variable is not taken into account for this tool.
Use the correct command:
univention-certificate-user renew -cn user12345 -name user12345 -days 365 --certpath /etc/univention/ssl/user/
