We have Lotus Domino R4.6.3 server. Whenever my users connect to the server from clients, they get an error that says, "Warning: Your certificate issued to /COMPANYNAME by /COMPANYNAME will expire on 10/05/2003, please request a new certificate."
/COMPANYNAME is my organizational certifier and root certifier and I think it cannot expire so early because we have not changed the default certificate expiration date. And only some users are getting this error and these users' certifiers are not expiring in the near future. Please suggest what to do.
I think what is happening is that the user's certificate is expiring, even though the root certificate is still good. Take a look at the certificates on an ID file and you will see the difference.
Go to the Notes client software for one of these users. Do File / Tools / User ID / Certificates. You should see two or more certificates. Click on each one. Notice that the last one shows the expiration date of the root certificate itself. The others show the expiration date of the certification as it is applied to that user's name. Perhaps one of these is expiring on 10/5/03.
