Backing up a server certificate

In case the computer on which the management server is installed gets corrupted, you should back up the private key and the certificate.
The JKS Keystore file is backed up during the initial installation. A file that is called
server_
timestamp
.xml
is also backed up. The JKS Keystore file includes the server's private and public key pair and the self-signed certificate.
