Using the ACT and INACT commands

Activating or deactivating a certificate


[PKIFNAME     =     string,]
ROOTCID     =     string,
ID = string,
[INUM = number,]
TYPE = string


Use the ACT and INACT commands to activate or deactivate one or more certificates in the local database. If a root or intermediate authority certificate is deactivated, all dependent certificates (user or intermediate authorities) are automatically deactivated.

The syntax is the same for both commands.


[PKIFNAME = string1..64]

Name of the local certificate internal datafile in which the operation is to be performed.

On each OS, a default name is assigned to the local certificate database.

ID = string1..8

Unique local identifier of the certificate(s) to be activated or deactivated, depending on the command.

The * and ? wildcard characters are accepted for the ID parameter value.

[ INUM= number1..99]

Internal number for the intermediate certificates in an imported chain of certificates (in the PKI database).

ROOTCID = string1..8

Local identifier of the authority of the certificates to be enabled/disabled.

This parameter must even be indicated for an authority certificate. In this case, the ID and ROOTCID parameters have the same value.

  TYPE = KEY KEY: To activate/deactivate the PKIKEY.
