Edit an Existing CA License Key File
If the ca.olf file exists, open it using a text editor of your choice and make the edits.
Follow these steps:
  1. Open the ca.olf file using a text editor, such as Notepad.
  2. Replace all lines beginning with ID_ with the ID_ lines indicated in the Execution Key.
  3. Go to the bottom of the file and immediately following any existing FEATURE lines, add the FEATURE line from the Execution Key.
    Do not remove any existing FEATURE lines.
  4. Select Save As from the File menu to save the edited ca.olf file in the CA_LIC folder.
    The FEATURE line can wrap to a second line on the certificate, but it must be entered on a single line with no carriage return in the ca.olf file.
