Moving a clustered server and credential store to a new cluster and credential store

Follow these steps to move a clustered server and credential store to a new cluster and credential store. These steps assume the server being moved is the first server in the new cluster.


  1. From a server in the current cluster, use the following server console command to export the current credential store data to a database on the server:
    keymgmt export credstore <database> <local_server> 
    • <database> is the name of a database to export the data to.
    • <local_server> is the Notes hierarchical name of the local server.
    For example:
    keymgmt export credstore credstorecopy.nsf hubserver/renovations 
  2. Rename the credstore.nsf file. For example, rename it credstore_orig.nsf
  3. Change the Server document to specify the new cluster name and restart the server.
  4. Create a named encryption key for the credential store to be created for the new cluster:
    keymgmt create nek <nekname> 
    For example:
    keymgmt create nek credstorekey 
  5. Use the new key to create a new credential store on the server:
    keymgmt create credstore <nekname>
    For example:
    keymgmt create credstore credstorekey
  6. Populate the new credential store with the contents of the database you created in Step 1.
    keymgmt import credstore <database>
    where <database> is the name of the database. For example:
    keymgmt import credstore credstorecopy.nsf
  7. Set up this credential store on the other servers in the cluster. For more information, see Step 2 in the procedure Creating the credential store application in a cluster.
