Alert: Webtop Certs Expiring

EMC issued an ETA (EMC Technical Alert) last week to inform customers that the applet certificates used in products 6.5 sp3, 6.6 and 6.7 will expire on November 2, 2012.  See the ETA here.

Products affected include: Administrator, Digital Asset Manager, Documentum Compliance Manager, Documentum Foundation Services, My Documentum for Microsoft Outlook (DCO), TaskSpace, WDK, WebPublisher, Webtop.

The provided solution, available here, is essentially to run with expired certs, upgrade to D6.7SP1, or contact tech support for personal assistance.


About Scott
I have been implementing Documentum solutions since 1997. In 2005, I published a book about developing Documentum solutions for the Documentum Desktop Client (ISBN 0595339689). In 2010, I began this blog as a record of interesting and (hopefully) helpful bits of information related to Documentum, and as a creative outlet.

    You can also apply patch 20, which updates the applet certificate. This is probably the easiest way to fix it.

    Congrats for your blog 🙂

    You can also use http mode for imported documents instead of UCF mode that use the applet

    Is there anyway to check the applet certificate in IE?


    • Scott says:

      Sort of. When the UCF Applet runs for the first time, in the dialog box that asks for permission to run, click the ‘More Information’ link in the bottom right-hand corner. From there, click the ‘Certificate Details’ link. This opens the Java control panel (Security tab). From here you can view the certificate validity date. The catch is that you have to see this dialog box, and if you have already checked the ‘Always trust content from this publisher’ checkbox, this dialog is bypassed.

      Alternativley, you can go directly to the Java control panel and see the same info.
