CMS-XML How does SBM connect to a SSL protected server
SBM has several Java-based components that can make calls to outside services that are protected with SSL. A few of these services are the Notification Server, Mail Client, Orchestration Engine and Application Repository. Orchestrations that use HTTPS SSL endpoints do so under the purview of the Orchestration Engine. When these services attempt to contact an SSL enabled endpoint (web service, Exchange Server, etc), it is required to tell the SBM JDK to trust the SSL certificate provide to it by the endpoint.
CMS-XML Using SourceBridge from the VM I-Net Web Client when the connection to the SBM server uses HTTPS (Secure Sockets Layer - SSL)
When the VM I-Net server (Serena VM Web Application Server) needs to talk to an SBM , TeamTrack or Tracker server using SSL (HTTPS), it is crucial that the Java Runtime Engine (JRE) used by Version Manager can verify the SSL certificate. This is not a problem when the certificate is a public one, obtained from the commercial Certificate Authorities (CA) Java knows about, but it can become problematic when the SSL certificate is either self-signed or signed by a non-public Certificate Authority.
CMS-XML Configurator gives error "Unable to configure gatekeeper-core-config.xml. This may affect normal functioning of Single Sign-On features." and can't set overrides in Secure SSO section.
This error was caused by a change that was made to the following file outside of configurator. C:\Program Files\Serena\ SBM \Common\Tomcat 7.0\server\default\webapps\idp\WEB-INF\conf\Configuration.xml In this case there was a section remarked out by the customer and was causing configurator to not be able to update the override section which in turned caused the gatekeeper-core-config.xml file to not get the override set.

CMS-XML SBM 10.1 - How to generate new signed certificate trust keys for SBM and copy them to additional servers as needed (Generating SSO certificates)
To secure your installation, you must generate new key new key pairs. If you do not generate new key pairs, then the default certificates that the STS inherently trusts are used. To increase security you should generate a new unique certificate for each SSO component.
