Import Certificate into Linux 10.1 NSM

Is there a Linux based product guide for the 10.1 NSM? docs.mcafee only provides an NSM product guides that says I need to import my LDAPS certificate using <Manager install directory>\jre\bin\keytool.exe -import -alias "LDAP Certifi cate".  Natually keytool.exe does not exist on the linux manager.

What is the alternative method for importing the LDAP certs into the Manager?

Re: Import Certificate into Linux 10.1 NSM

This solution does not work. WINSCP uses Putty, and putty cannot access NSM 10.1 due to Putty missing aes256-GCM and aes-128-GCM Ciphers.

SCP also does not seem to be working from either a linux or windows client.

Example: scp .\RootCAv2.crt admin@

Returns: nothing

On the manager:

running: Unable to run the executable script keytool -import -trustcacerts -alias "LDAP Certificate" -file /home/admin/RootCAv2.crt -keystore /opt/NetworkSecurityManager/App/config/CustomSecurity/CustomJSSEcaCerts


Returns: Unable to run the executable script keytool -import -trustcacerts -alias "LDAP Certificate" -file /home/admin/RootCAv2.crt -keystore /opt/NetworkSecurityManager/App/config/CustomSecurity/CustomJSSEcaCerts
