urgently Need to convert SSL certificate request from 1024 bits to 2048 bits

Hi Team,

For our PI 7.1, We have to send certificate request to the Veri Sign for getting Signed certificate from them . They accept Cert request only in 2048 bits format but we have our cert in 1024 bits format . Is there any parameter or any way out through which we can convert that 1024 bits cert into 2048 bits.

I found through NWA tool, but there the older ssl-credentials private key needs to be deleted ( which has 1024 bits) and the new key needs to be created with 2048 bits but client doesn’t want anything to be deleted from the system .

Also the existing cert is missing a few fields like locality and state details which we want to add. Please suggest way out.

    In that case you can can export the existing ssl-credentials before deleting it as a backup.

    also go through

    1548872 - Creating a Certificate with a 2048 bit key in the Visual Administrator

    Alsthough it is upto 7.00, but same options we have in NWA..
