Above URL steps is for self certificate renewal by users.
As Notes Administrator, how do we do it on behalf of users. Kindly advise
Can I ask a question? Why is it that you, being a “Notes Administrator” don’t know this?
Notes Administration is new to me. I just being assigning this tasks and no training is given.
Where IanIBM’s approach works well enough from the client’s perspective, it really does require their interaction. You can, as the admin, proactively renew them from the Address Book. Select the people you want, then menu option Actions – Recertify selected people. It will prompt for the certifier and new expiration date. The next time they sign on with the client, their certificate will be updated with the new date.
Philosophically, that expiration is a protection against former employees, so I would take some steps to verify that they are still employees before blindly recertifying in bulk. That is one of the advantages of having the user drive the process. We have asked office managers to verify their practice employees periodically for extranet accounts.
